Mission: Albany Helping Hands mission statement is to care for those who are less fortunate. May no man, woman or child face unbearable times without a helping hand from their brothers and sisters through the love of the Lord. Needs never stop, and neither will we!
Target demographics: Those who are less fortunate, men, women, and children.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 73 homeless residents get a job, and move on to their own home with their own job.
Geographic areas served: Our mission is to help those in the Linn County area
Programs: Providing a nice warm place to live. Very good warm food, and a clean and sober place for those less fortunate to have a place to get back on their feet and make a better life for themselves. We also just got a grant approved to start a program that will assist the residents to find a job that suits them, help with creating a resume and providing clothes for that person once the job has accepted them. The grant is just a start and would greatly appreciate and donations to further the program to be able to provide business clothes, and other things needed for the program to be a success! Our program also recently received two houses that we are now using as a transitional house for those who have found a job, but are still needing assistance with the final needs of being on their own. Providing the abilities to learn how to live on their own without the dependency of other, and re-learn how to pay bills again, and other responsibilities that come with living on your own.
