Helping Hands

One family, Two locations

Helping Hands is a part of the Special Needs Ministry at University Methodist Church.

Helping Hands is a pre-vocational day habilitation program that serves higher functioning adults with special needs who need a place to grow, develop skills, and establish life-long friendships. Helping Hands offers daily tasks and activities to adults who have intellectual and developmental challenges. Together, we serve our church, our community, and one another.

A Day In The Life….

Each day at Helping Hands is filled with service, fun, and fellowship! Our tasks are geared toward serving others and many of them promote independent livings skills. In addition to our tasks and activities, we eat out at area restaurants and go bowling regularly. Physical activity is also a part of our day. 

Our Mission

To provide opportunities that bring purpose and dignity to youth and adults who have intellectual and developmental challenges. These opportunities encompass spiritual growth, education, fellowship, service to God and our community.
