Boca Helping Hands provides many resources to clients facing financial difficulties. First and foremost, we are a "resource center" providing additional options and referrals. Secondly, we assist our clients in preparing a realistic monthly budget so that they can meet their financial obligations. As we work on our clients' budgets, we can suggest numerous alternatives to alleviate their financial burden. Finally, under certain circumstances, we offer direct financial assistance.
Financial assistance is offered to clients who have been residents of Boca Raton for at least 12 months. Clients must bring in proof of residency. Clients may receive limited financial assistance in a twelve month period for aid with rent (must have a 3 day notice from landlord), utilities (must have final notice from F.P.L. or Water Department), One time prescription medication excluding anti-depressants and pain medicines (must have doctor's prescription), bus passes (to a place of employment or to a doctor's appointment). Prospective clients should contact the Resource Center in advance of appointment to determine the appropriate and necessary documents they should bring to their screening.
Note, financial assistance is rendered as available. Not all clients qualify, nor are funds available to assist every qualified applicant. Boca Helping Hands has the final determination of the amount of financial aid rendered, if any.
Information and Referral:
Given for those who need additional services or ongoing case work.
For more information please email

* Make sure you check by calling the food pantry to confirm that they still are in operation and the hours have not changed.
