Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of the program is to get the individuals we serve free from the habits and consequences of past mistakes, harmful choices, and painful events in their life, while helping them become established and stable in providing for themselves and their family in all areas of life.

We will provide life skills training, job acquisition support, parenting classes, financial management assistance, skills to build healthy relationships and assistance to overcome addictions, depression, insecurities, anger, and more.

Along with two apartment buildings totaling 18 fully furnished units, we have trained and caring staff and volunteers, with a network of financial and material support . We also have a Thrift Store that not only helps provide needed funds, but also work and training for some of the residents served by Helping Hands.

Upon moving to Helping Hands 100% of our organization population has been, or soon would be, homeless before moving into our housing. They are facing not only homelessness, but many times joblessness, legal fines, child custody cases, and more. We tell our residents we are more than a landing pad in their lives, but a launching pad as well. Upon transitioning back into the community our residents have a clean safe place to live, consistently good habits, financial independence, stable work, and more often than not, transportation. Our goal is to continue to improve our organization and positive impact on the lives of adults and children.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
