Helping Hands Hawaii (HHH) is a private 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. Established in 1941 and incorporated in 1974, Helping Hands Hawaii evolved from the Honolulu Council of Social Agencies’ Volunteer Placement Bureau. The agency’s mission is “to strengthen our community by enhancing the quality of people’s lives through the delivery of goods and services to those in need.” Helping Hands Hawaii offers a vital lifeline for the community, helping its members to help one another through its wide variety of programs. The organization’s Behavioral Health Division provides seriously mentally ill adults on Oahu and Hawaii Island with clinical and therapeutic services and case management to improve their condition and help them to get re-integrated into the community. The Human Services Division runs critical programs such as: Ready to Learn, Adopt A Family, Emergency Assistance Program, Punawai Program, Bilingual Access Line, Community Clearinghouse, Representative Payee and SNAP.
