Our Mission Statement
Sharing and Caring Hands is a compassionate response to the needs of the poor. We are set up to be a safety net organization to help with whatever needs are not being met. This includes but is not limited to providing meals, clothing, showers, shelter, transportation help, rent deposits, rent help, medical assistance, dental care, furniture, school expenses, funeral assistance, and other miscellaneous needs.
Sharing and Caring Hands provides these with dignity, while affirming God's love for all his people regardless of their circumstances. We reaffirm the self-worth of each individual and want to assist in that person reaching his or her greatest potential.
Sharing and Caring Hands is an extension of the community to the desperate needs of the poor and exists as a vehicle for volunteers to commit their time and resources towards making a difference in the lives of others.
Sharing and Caring Hands stands as an emotional anchor and a beacon of hope to those who are alone, afraid, or in need.
Established and Proven
Sharing and Caring Hands was founded in 1985 by Mary Jo Copeland as a safety-net organization to help those who could not obtain help from the welfare system. We exist as a vehicle for volunteers to commit their time and resources to make a difference in the lives of the people of the community.
In these increasingly tough times of government cutbacks, the private sector must provide for the individuals falling through the cracks in the government welfare system.
Sharing and Caring Hands provides a host of services that include food, clothing, shelter, transportation assistance, medical and dental help and much more to the over 20,000 people who come through our facility each month. Over $400,000 is spent each month on the needs of the poor.
Sharing and Caring Hands is run by volunteers with few paid staff. Mary Jo receives no salary. The center relies solely on donations of time, goods, services and money from the community it serves. Remarkably, it does not accept Federal or State monies and is not affiliated with United Way, but relies entirely on donations.
