Mission

Hand Up Enterprise AL® is a 100% volunteer staffed and patron funded organization committed to feeding and providing humane essentials to the at-need; women/children/infants, elderly, disabled, working poor and homeless.

Our food pantry is 100% funded by patron donations. We clothe the at-need; women/children/infants, elderly, disabled, working poor and homeless. We provide essential personal items to the at-need; toothbrushes/paste, deodorant, shampoo, toilet paper, baby wipes/diapers, bath soap, laundry pods, and school supplies.

For our elderly community specifically, we conduct wellness checks, supply essential items such as medicated powder, antibiotic ointment, latex gloves, alcohol wipes, personal wipes, sanitizing gel, otc reading glasses, gently used towels, bedding, clothes, shoes, routine wellness home checks (including light housework/meal preparation.). We advocate on behalf of the elderly in health, utility and housing matters.

For the at-need unemployed or underemployed without transportation we offer temporary transportation until alternate/permanent ride share is arranged. We also offer a separate facebook site to encourage the business community to post employment openings.

Hand Up's primary mission is to provide emergency food to the at-need. Our approach to distributing food is unique; assemble a food box (+ hygiene items) and deliver it to the door of the recipient/family. Door to door interaction is critical in vetting need. Hand Up referrals come from many advocates; neighbors, friends, co-workers, a religious leader, community leaders, business owners or a county agency. By visiting the home it allows the volunteer to adequately assess the family to make sure any eligible resources are known to the client.

Enterprise has a sustained and transient homeless population. Seasonal homeless can number up to fifty or more. Permanent homeless residents number between 20 and 30 individuals. These figures do not include homeless housed in the one Christian based shelter or those placed in transitional housing.

Hand Up serves Enterprise, Coffee County Alabama. Occasionally we get referrals outside of Enterprise. Our organization has been casually functioning since late Feb 2016 but we became a legal non-profit on May 23, 2016.
