Helping Hands is the only stable, on-going emergency shelter in the area. As more people fall into homelessness, the consequences to the community are severe. It is our goal to continue to support the homeless during this very critical time. Linn and Benton County residents are very dependent on the emergency housing and meals we provide. We want to offer them more. We want to offer them a way out of homelessness.
We only have one transitional house at the moment. We are still in the experimental stages of the program. However our main goals and objectives for this program is to put homeless people with incomes into transitional housing.
