Special Announcement Area


Join us for our 6th Annual Gallery Night on Thursday, February 9th at 6:30 PM as we celebrate our art program and artists at Helping Hand!

Individuals in the art program tackle a variety of subjects in a wide array of media. For many individuals, seemingly simple tasks, such as collecting supplies or making a mark on the canvas, are a challenge. In addition to improving tactile skills, like fine and gross motor functions and following step-by-step instruction, art plays a pivotal role in self-expression and individuality.

This event will be hosted in our Community Connections Space at our Countryside location that was created for our clients, students, and community to foster inclusive art experiences. You will see our vision come alive as the artistic abilities of our clients and students are showcased and celebrated!


  • Individual: $40 through 1/31 (tickets include an open bar and appetizers)

Wow! What an amazing day it was at our Move with HH walk in October. The weather was perfect for it and we could truly feel our mission being moved through the community. We were thrilled to see so many HH friends, families, staff, and community members out to raise awareness and make connections.

We are excited to announce that we raised $40,000 from this event that will benefit our programs and services!

A special thank you to our Move with HH committee chairs – Vicki van Alphen and Chris Kurimay, Spring Rock Park, and the restaurants/grocery stores that provided food for our post-walk celebration (Trader Joes, Panera, Via Bella, and Tio Luis Tacos).

Thank you ALL again for your support in making our first year for this event a success! We look forward to seeing you at our Move with HH walk again next fall!

Our 36th Annual Golf Outing was a HUGE success thanks to all of your support. We are thrilled to announce that we raised over $116,000 (gross) – a record breaking number!

Congratulations to The SSA Group for receiving the Advocacy Leadership Award award – thank you for all that you do for Nick and others in the I/DD community! Thank you to the individuals for participating in our Invest in the Mission to help us purchase a van to get our clients to and from their jobs in the community safely.

A special thank you to our vocational leaders, event volunteers, the Golf Outing committee, and our chairs of the committee for making this event such a success – Paul Murphy and Jim Walker.

An Evening of Transformation logo for Gala event

Our 23rd Annual Gala: An Evening of Transformation this past Friday was a wonderful evening celebrating the remarkable work of our mission. 

We are thrilled to announce, with your support, our event raised over a record-breaking $260,000!

During the event, we saw Ashely’s transformation at Helping Hand and how she transformed the room with the power of her voice. We saw other student and client appearances throughout the program, and reflected on all of our amazing staff that provide genuine care and education by bringing value to everyone served at Helping Hand. 

We are inspired by all those that participated, whether in-person or at home. Thank you for connecting with us and helping us celebrate our mission!
