The mission of Helping Hands is to help homeless men and women find alternatives to life on the streets.
Since December 2004, we have been working with a broad coalition of communities of faith and concerned organizations and individuals, in partnership with government, business and civic leaders, to alleviate the plight of the homeless in Rockland County.
Our Outreach Program is open year round, providing case management and referrals to the support services our clients need (including housing, employment, substance abuse programs, and medical, legal and social services).
From mid-November through mid-April our Safe Haven provides our guests with a safe, drug- and alcohol-free haven and hot meals.
The Rockland Runs reach out to homeless people living on the streets of the county delivering food, clothing, hygiene items and good cheer.
Building for the Future
Our immediate objectives are:
• to develop our Outreach Center services
• to expand our Safe Haven program
• to end homelessness in Rockland County, one person at a time
