The mission of Helping Hands Hawai`i is to develop community self-sufficiency and resilience by providing guidance, household goods and opportunities for empowerment and connection.
What We Do
Helping Hands Hawaii helps people working to overcome poverty, homelessness, food insecurity, household instability, language barriers and other challenges. Our programs include representative payee services to help manage the social security and disability benefits of adults with severe and persistent mental illness; emergency financial assistance and basic necessities, including school supplies and holiday support; SNAP outreach to educate communities about nutrition benefits; and interpretation and translation services to support Hawaii's large community of individuals with limited English proficiency. These services work together to offer the community a holistic approach to address individual needs.
