Helping Hands

HELPING HANDS

As part of our Helping Hands program, we identify elderly citizens and people with disabilities who need assistance with yard maintenance, but cannot afford to pay for the service. We then match the resident with a volunteer group that completes a one-time, basic (yet thorough) yard cleanup. Services usually entail raking, picking up litter, collecting limbs/twigs, trimming bushes, and removing weeds. We provide all necessary supplies, such as gloves, bags, loppers, rakes, etc. Additional activities (e.g., mowing and planting native perennials) can also be completed, but they are at the discretion of the volunteer group.

VOLUNTEERS – If your group is interested in volunteering with this program, please complete our online volunteer form or call us at 402.444.7774

RESIDENTS – If you would like to see if you qualify and potentially enroll in this program, please call us at 402.444.7774

Last year, 67 residents were assisted by volunteer groups participating in the Helping Hands program.

Thank you to RBC Wealth Management for supporting us as a matching sponsor for Omaha Gives in 2016 and 2017!
