Helping Hands Resource Center provides those affected by trauma and violence with the basic necessities needed to move forward and rebuild their lives.
It is designed to bring love and compassion into the lives of those affected by abuse, trauma, homelessness, hardships, and violence.
Through awareness and education, we seek to heal trauma and end violence. Our services are available to children, women, men, and victims of any age, economic, social, religious, or ethnic group.
At Helping Hands Resource Center, we recognize that many individuals impacted by trauma, violence, abuse, and homelessness face significant challenges in accessing basic necessities. To address this need, our humanitarian program, Helping Hands Closet, is dedicated to providing assistance with essential items.
Through Helping Hands Closet, we offer support in meeting basic needs, including but not limited to food, personal hygiene products, clothing, some diapers, and home goods.
Furthermore, we understand the importance of connecting our clients with services and resources beyond our center. Our knowledgeable staff is committed to helping individuals navigate the community and identify additional support systems that can further enhance their well-being.
By combining our provision of basic necessities with guidance in accessing external resources, we aim to alleviate the challenges faced by individuals affected by trauma, violence, abuse, and homelessness.
Our mission is to provide holistic support and empower our clients to rebuild their lives and move towards a brighter future beyond violence and trauma.

"Go BAGS" were created to help ease a traumatic transition for domestic violence survivors and their children. They are shipped around the U.S.A, in person and given to victims within the first 6 months of their escape.
Are you a victim or survivor that has recently left your abuser in the last 6 months? (Please note "GO BAGS" are available upon request and while supplies last).
If you are interested in hosting a “Go Bag” drive to collect these items. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org subject: Go bags drive.
