Helping Hands-Harboring Hope
HH-HH is a simple organization with a simple purpose.
We unite funds and willing volunteers with a select number of needy individuals and groups, in a manner that provides a helping hand rather than a hand-out.
Here's What is Happening Now

Meet some of our next sewing center students, pictured here with their two instructors Poonam and Rita. We're really excited about this center because Poonam and Rita are recent sewing center graduates who have excelled in the skills they learned!
Deepock (next to Ruben Terry) is one of more than a dozen students who will receive a HH-HH college scholarship this year. All of these students are at risk of not being able to attend college without this assistance. Your undesignated donations help us with this and so much more!
HH-HH volunteers just >returned from India. Stay tuned for photos and stories of lives touched.
Temperatures in India continued to soar during what should have been the rainy season. With temperatures of up to 120 degrees the excruciating heat and lack of water resulted in a much higher demand for electricity than was produced, meaning no water access for those whose private or community pumps are powered by electricity. In one day 69 people died in the area of our work, two of those people being residents at the leper colony where we often visit. HH-HH sent emergency to help the elder and leprosy patients. To everyone who provided donations to help with the emergency relief, please know that 100% of those donations were sent for that purpose.
Congratulations to graduates of our 3rd sewing center. These ladies were recognized during a formal ceremony on March 5, 2014 and were awarded with a sewing machine purchased through a grant program Read more>>
