How Can I Help?
We ask that the faith community keep Help House, its Board of Directors, Advisory Committee, and clients in their prayers. Volunteers are an essential part of this important ministry. If you would like to become a member of the volunteer staff, please call and talk to a volunteer at Help House.
There is a continual need for monetary donations that can be applied toward maintenance, utilities, supplies, and food.
Donations of food, clothing, and paper goods may be taken to Help House during regular operating hours, or left in the shed located on the south side of the building. All clothing should be clean, in season, and in good condition. Children’s clothing and blankets are always in short supply.
If you have large, working appliances or furniture, please call first to check for available space in the building. Please do not drop these items off by the shed.
