Providing a Hand up in financial emergencies.

About us:

Hopes Helping Hands of NC is a 501 c 3 nonprofit founded in January 2021. The organization was started because the need for assistance was obvious. We want to not only give families emergency financial assistance and hope in knowing that their future is bright, but empower them with resources & skills to become more self-sufficient. Applicants are vetted and must meet requirements to receive financial assistance.
