WELCOME

We're here for you-

Helping Hands is what we are about-helping families with food when they are down and out.  A little boost now and then to help people "get back on their feet" again.  True to our name, we lend a hand to help alleviate hunger in our land. Helping Hands, we give it our all to help people when they call.  -cele mazour

 
Community Service

ABOUT US

HELPING HANDS EMERGENCY SERVICES emerged out of a pursuit to inspire change, increase awareness and reduce hunger by providing food and connections to resources to those living in Mahnomen County.  With a strong base of support from the community including many individuals, businesses, faith based organizations, school, youth groups and community volunteers we've been serving families in our area since 1983.
