About Helping Hands

Helping Hands of Potsdam, Inc. is a faith-based non-profit organization serving Potsdam, New York and the outlying area. It was founded in 2004 and is entirely supported by the kindness and generosity of local churches, individuals, organizations, and businesses. 

We serve local families through our food pantry and lunch program, provide for the distribution of used furniture and housewares, and offer assistance with fuel, rent, and utility payments in crisis situations.  In this way we are able to help those who cannot afford to heat their homes, provide nutritious meals for their families, or who perhaps just need the spiritual support we can offer.
