Program Philosophy

Helping Hands program offers disadvantaged community members free services and professional advice in the field of home construction, maintenance and repair.

The Helping Hands Program is a new program in development based on the idea of helping neighbors when they need a hand due to income or health restrictions. Projects may include such needs as constructing wheelchair ramps, repair or replacing hazardous floors, doors or windows or modifying an existing residence to allow better use by a disabled occupant. We will be working closely with the Emergency Home Repair Project, a long-term program chartered in 1991 by the First State Resource Conservation and Development Council, Inc. (RC&D) which is also a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
