Frugal Meals
Frugal Meals is a great way to express our faith, reconnect with friends, and help the less fortunate.  The concept is simple.  Instead of spending money on an expensive meal, have a simple meal at home (soup & sandwiches or beans & cornbread) and invite over some friends.  At the end of the evening, ask everyone to donate the money they would have spent on an expensive meal to Helping Hand of Hope.   If you would like, I can to come and share our story with your guests.   A couple of HHH supporters hosted these events last year, and we had a great response

Ms. Florence
It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Ms. Florence Mason. Florence's passion for our agency was shown through her countless years of service as the sweet face that greeted you at the receptionist desk. Her smile lit up the room and her laughter filled the building for many decades. Florence's heart was bigger than she was. She will be truly missed.

Final push to complete fundraising is underway
As attendees gathered to witness the next chapter in the story of Helping Hand of Hope, the Rev. Chuck Walker reminded everyone that the organization’s Christian mission is not new.

“We’re continuing something God started about 2,000 years ago,” Walker said.

The construction of the new Helping Hand of Hope facility is set to begin after the organization hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Friday at the property at the intersection of Hutcherson Lane and South Wilson Road. The new building will consolidate its locations in Elizabethtown and Radcliff.

Executive Director David Dozer said the project came about with a lot of meetings and prayer.

“This is wonderful, historical day for Helping Hand of Hope,” he said.

The organization is in the midst of a capital campaign to fund the building, and Dozer said he hopes the building is fully paid for when it’s completed. The organization hopes the facility will be complete this fall, said John Wright, chairman of the Helping Hand of Hope Board of Directors.

The goal is to raise $900,000, and Dozer said the organization has raised almost $700,000. Wright thanked the community for the gifts to the project’s campaign.

“We appreciate all of your wonderful examples of Christian stewardship,” he said.

Bill Evans, co-chairman of the campaign, said speaking with people about funding this project has made a personal impact on him.

“Your generosity rubs off on me and makes me a better person,” he said.

Helping Hand of the Heartland was formed in 1972 by Dottie Hanson and the Elizabethtown Ministerial Association. North Hardin Hope was created 10 years later by the Radcliff Ministerial Association.

The two agencies merged in 2011. Helping Hand of Hope works with families in need of services such as income assistance and job readiness.

Those interested in donating to the project can call Helping Hand of Hope at (270) 769-3092.

A Fresh Start A Fresh Start
Helping Hand of Hope to break ground on new facility
After a successful Capital Campaign that was generously supported by the Hardin county communities, Helping Hand of Hope took its next big step towards a physical unification of Helping Hand and North Hardin Hope. This morning at 10:00 a.m. a groundbreaking ceremony was held near the intersection of Hutcherson Lane and South Wilson Road. Consolidating the currently two location into one facility is expected to save Helping Hand of Hope about $75,000 per year.
 
We would like to take the opportunity to say "Thank You" to all the organizations, businesses and private donors that supported us in our efforts to make a big step into our organization's future.
 
May God bless you all!

Commitment Card

Building a Community of Hope - Capital Campaign.

Helping Hand of Hope has started its 2013 Capital Campaign.

The proceeds of this campaign will support us in making an important step in the future of our ministry.

 

Currently we are residing in two facilities, one in Elizabethtown, and another one in Radcliff. Our ministry is quickly outgrowing both places.

 

·         Our Radcliff facility hosts GED classes. Because the number of applicants for these classes steadily increases our classroom is quickly becoming too small.

 

·         The demand for Job Readiness Classes has increased significantly and there isn’t a suitable place to host these classes in either of our facilities.

 

·         Our clients have a need for privacy when Helping Hand of Hope representatives assist them with the aid they need.

 

·         Both facilities are in need for an expanded clothing room.

 

·         Our ministry is currently paying a monthly lease of $2,000.00 for the Elizabethtown facility.

 

 

To meet the growing needs of the poorest in our community we will build a centrally-located building at the corner of Hutcherson Lane and S.Wilson Road in Radcliff, KY. This new building will enable us to solve many of the challenges we are currently facing.

 

To build this “Community of Hope” we will need your help. If you would like to be a part of our mission to serve God’s people in need and help them to create self-sustaining lifestyles, print out one of the Commitment Cards on this site and send it back with your gift or pledge to:
 
Helping Hand of Hope, P.O. Box 642, Elizabethtown, KY 42701.
If you would like to know more about this campaign, of if you have any questions about our ministry and mission, you may contact us by phone at (270) 769-3092 or by email at ddozer@hhhope.org.
 
 
Your generosity and commitment will support us in continuing to provide all of Hardin County with opportunities for sharing resources that foster personal self-worth and human dignity.
