Welcome to Hands of Help – The Voice for the Voiceless

Hands of Help is a local 501c organization founded in 2011 to help those in extreme need for assistance, advocacy, and referrals. So many times other organizations have to go through procedures that can delay help for weeks or months when someone is homeless or hungry, waiting is not an option.

We serve the Mississippi Gulf Coast primarily Hancock County but are not limited to one county. We seek to provide the basic essentials of living to homeless and low income. Some of these items are razors, soap, towels, clothing, food, and other immediate needs.

If you choose to donate your items to Goodwill, Please ask them to give credit to Hands of Help. You still get the credit and we can give our clients vouchers for clothing.

When funds are available we will help with utility and rental assistance. Under no circumstances do we give cash to our clients. We pay any funding directly to the company that the client needs assistance with. Such as utilities, rent, and food. We do our best to verify the circumstances before we agree to assistance. This has become a necessary part of our outreach.

Mission Statement

Hands of Help Mission Statement

To bring the Love of God to those who need to know Him and encourage them that they are accepted and loved.

To help feed, clothe and meet individual needs of people who are struggling to make ends meet. To lift up and motivate people to achieve their full potential.

Many needs are not being met. Smaller outreach programs have difficulty serving others because of financial limitations and lack of volunteers and organization.

Hands of Help will work alone and with other ministries to combine services to achieve a unified outreach to those who need it most.

Funding will come from Individuals, Churches, Grants and Businesses.

Each need is handled individually, and assistance depends on the situation and availability of funding.


All Donations to Hands of Help are Tax Deductible

We will need commitments for continuing donations to financially support this ministry.

Experience has taught us not to hand over any money to our clients. If they come to us needing money, we verify the need. Then if they are qualified clients, we pay the necessity from the Hands of help account by check, delivered by one of our consultants to the place of business. No money ever changes hands between Hands of Help and our clients to help insure funds are used wisely.

At the present time all consultants of Hands of Help work on a voluntary basis. Ninety-Five percent of donations are used for direct aid to clients. Our contributors are Churches, Businesses, and independent contributors.

Unlike most organizations, we take no pay or benefits from the donations that are received. Over 90% of donations go directly to the needs of our clients.
