Welcome to Helping Hands of Haywood


To be able to provide stable permanent housing and emergency shelter to those experiencing homelessness or insecure housing.


Expand and add valuable programs and provide vital items needed to increase the well-being of our community, especially to those who are disenfranchised, experiencing homelessness, or insecure shelter in Haywood County and western North Carolina.


We believe housing, income, or addiction does not define a person or their value to a community. We believe accessibility to mental health programs is key to the healing process.


Helping Hands of Haywood is raising money to house families and individuals in Haywood County that are experiencing homelessness during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. To donate, click the button below.

Raising Funds for EACH Initiative

Helping Hands of Haywood believes in working together with other organizations and programs to provide essential care for individuals experiencing homelessness. When we put our heads together, we fill in the missing pieces and make more of an impact in our community. We are currently working with the EACH Initiative, a nonprofit charity, with a goal of ending area child homelessness. Our plan is to combine their housing and social resources with our goal of funding one year of utilities for a family experiencing homelessness. When housing is combined with after care, individuals are less likely to need emergency housing in the future and can sustain a home permanently. With the help of the whole community, we can make a difference. To donate, click the button below.
