Thank you Generous Donors

Nineteen years ago Albany Helping Hands became a Independent Faith Based Non-Denominational 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit corporation.  Many have joined us in celebrating the many successes in the past 19 years by contributing to our Anniversary Fundraiser.

We closed out $6,600 over the Nineteenth Anniversary fundraising campaign goal of $19,000. Due to the generous support of contributors we raised $25,600.16 which is more than 1/3 over our $19,000 goal. Thank you for your generous warm hearted contributions!

Albany Helping Hands roots go back to the 1980's, sheltering those in need at a small church at the corner of First and Main in Albany. 

Without question, God has blessed our mission here in Albany. So, it is during this month of September we want to take the time to remember, as well as celebrate our small beginnings.
— Pastor John Leon, Exec. Director AHH

Today, Albany Helping Hands has a housing capacity for 110 persons.  For the latest fiscal year (10/1/2016 - 9/30/2017)  we provided 34,423 Bed-Nights of emergency housing to those in need.

In addition to the shelter operation, 85,561 hot meals were served to shelter and non-shelter guests alike. Our facilities also serve in extreme weather conditions as Warming and Cooling Centers.
