Project H.A.N.D.S.® (Helping Angels National Donated Support) is a program in which residents and staff at RHF communities partner with local organizations to give back and help those in need. Participating Project H.A.N.D.S. groups hand make items that are then donated to their area hospitals and schools, shelters, and other local organizations.
Each Project H.A.N.D.S. group has its own flavor and network of community partners. Some communities knit, crochet, sew and quilt creating blankets, sweaters, scarves, and other items. Other communities stuff backpacks with school supplies and fills personal care bags with toiletries. One community sewed 500 Christmas stockings for their local Police Department to distribute during the holidays. Another community grew vegetables in their community garden and donated a portion of the harvest to their local Salvation Army shelter. Whatever RHF residents can create with their hands and give to others in need is a part of this program.
The residents and staff who volunteer their time and talents to Project H.A.N.D.S. are lovingly referred to as “Helping Angels.”
This program is funded completely through donor support.
