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
*We're gearing up to celebrate Christmas with a large group of developmentally disabled adults served by our partner organization Lakemary Center. Much needed clothing items will be delivered personally by Santa and Mrs. Claus. Thanks to everyone who has helped us help them during the holiday season.
**Throughout the holiday our HH-HH volunteer teams have been busy helping others. Each year we adopt a Red Kettle location in partnership with the Salvation Army. Thanks to our dedicated group, all of our shifts for this year have been scheduled. Thanks to everyone who joined this year's bell ringer team!
Our volunteer team partnered with Johnson County Christmas Bureau during its December 4th "It's hip to give hop," gala, to raise funds that will help thousands of families during the holiday. The families helped by JCCB generally receive no other assistance and need a little extra help during the holidays.
Santa's elves, masquerading as HH-HH volunteers, have worked diligently throughout the month, purchasing, sorting and wrapping gifts that Santa will deliver to adults with developmental disabilities. The clothing items Santa will deliver are much needed by many of these individuals who survive on a limited income.
HH-HH volunteers have been busy all month with projects that will benefit clients of Healing House, Inc. which is a faith-based substance abuse recovery organization, working in the Kansas City area help individuals committed to overcoming their additions.
Our dedicated team also provided assistance to a valued HH-HH partner family who provides hundreds of filled shoeboxes to children through the Samaritan Purse Operation Christmas Child program. HH-HH provided clothing and small toys and our volunteers wrapped a hundred or more shoeboxes. To learn more about Operation Christmas Child visit
Thanks in large part to a grant from Kingdom Mission Fund, HH-HH was able to make a key donor contribution to Nazareth Educational Society (NES) for the funding of Rapha Medical Centre. That facility's inauguration was held on September 27th, on the birthday of NASA-India founder Dr. Christopher Premdas. This hospital is the realization of one of Dr. Premdas' long time dreams to reach the unreachable and touch the untouchable in India. Sony Wood, Dr. Premdas' son, is Executive Director for NES. Sony's wife and partner is a skilled physician who has long dedicated her time and talents to provide medical care to India's less fortunate.
