Time to Change Launched
The Time to Change program of Helping Hands is being launched to provide the unemployed and underemployed members of our community an opportunity to reclaim their lives.
The first step in this journey is employment.
Program participants must first complete our Jobs Week, a week-long job readiness program.
Once employed, participants are invited to take the second step in our program and enter our year-long Time to Change class. This class offers a structured curriculum, case management and peer support. Deana Cooper, our Case Manager, leads this effort with the goal of providing information, discipline and encouragement for those navigating the magnitude of sacrifice and change required to move from poverty to self-sufficiency.
In a spiritually rich environment of compassionate caring,
Helping Hands of Georgetown offers HOPE, HELP and CHANGE.
We offer Compassionate Care providing basic needs (food, clothing, utilities and dental care) to help address the daily needs of those struggling with poverty and crisis.
Our Time to Change Program offers a highly structured, incentive driven program designed to support individuals and families move out of poverty.

Because of you, and others like you, Helping Hands is blessed with the resources to provide compassionate care for those in crisis, and to open the doors of opportunity for those ready and able to become self-sufficient. As a result, Helping Hands touched the lives of over 3000 families in 2014. Thank you!
