About

His Helping Hands completes no-cost home repairs for Tri-County senior citizens, veterans, single parents, those with disabilities, and low-income homeowners. Projects are completed 12 months a year, under the watchful eyes of volunteer contractors and trades pros.

Depending on their skills and comfort level, volunteers can be active in every aspect of the project, from meeting with homeowners and scheduling jobs to swinging a hammer to "mudding drywall." We believe in giving volunteers big jobs!

Volunteering with His Helping Hands can be a one-time-thing or as much as a couple times a week. You can volunteer as an individual, as a family, or as a group. In the spring, summer and fall, most of our projects are outside; the winter finds us indoors mostly.

To get started, send us an email at redeemed797@yahoo.com and let us know your name and contact info. We will then arrange for you to meet our Executive Director Jeff Heft who will invite you to a jobsite to see what we do. Then you and Jeff will discuss ways you would feel comfortable helping and get you signed up.
