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
September 20, 2014 - Holiday of Hope Gala This year's Holiday of Hope gala hosted by Johnson County Christmas Bureau to help families in Johnson County, KS during the holiday season will be held on September 20th.

June 18, 2014 - A Day at the Ballpark We are treating some very special people to a day at the ballpark this year and we could sure use some help to fund this event. Each year we treat a group of developmentally disabled adults to a baseball game and all you can eat hotdogs. This year, we're going to have a record breaking number of folks who want to come, and we can't bear to limit the size of the group and tell someone no. A $10 tax deductible donation to HH-HH can sponsor entry to the game, a hotdog, chips, dessert and bottled water for one adult with special needs. Please consider sponsoring a special needs adult's attendance at this event. Checks can be sent to HH-HH at P. O. Box 19381, Lenexa, KS 66285 or you can pledge from our website for online giving options. Please designate "Lakemary" on the memo line of your check! On their behalf THANK YOU!
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.
