Welcome to Helping Hands Inc!
Here at Helping Hands, we offer programs to persons with intellectual disabilities who are mentally and physically challenged. Our programs are designed around each individual’s needs and implemented in the least restrictive environment for the safety and well being of the individual.
Our goal is to maximize the person’s skills and abilities to his or her fullest potential in order to prepare and assist them for living within their community. Our programs encourage individuals to grow in self-assurance and respect while enjoying their rehabilitations, residential, vocational and recreational experiences.

Helping Hands currently has six community homes. Our residential program is designed to offer families the comfort and security of knowing that the unique challenges their loved ones face are being met in a warm, caring, home-like setting. Not only are residents’ medical, dental, and health requirements accommodated, but also all specialized nutritional needs.
Social Recreation Programs
Our Socialization and Recreation Program is ever-expanding and always open for new suggestions. With activities such as swimming, bowling, movie nights, sleepovers, sporting events and more, we strive to provide adequate socialization for Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
Our Camp / Shore Summer Program provides an age-appropriate socialization experience for anyone over the age of 18. The first four weeks of the summer are designated as ‘Camp’ weeks, which cater to those individuals who would prefer a structured, summer camp type of atmosphere. The remaining 7 weeks of the summer are designated as ‘Shore’ weeks, providing a vacation-like atmosphere.
