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. 

Today, Albany Helping Hands has a housing capacity for 110 persons.  For the 12 month rolling period (September 2017 through August 2017) we provided 33,437 Bed-Nights in the past year* . 

In addition to the shelter operation, the AHH Soup Kitchen served 83,228 hot meals over the last 12 months* to shelter and non-shelter guests alike.

Our facilities also serve in extreme weather conditions as Warming and Cooling Centers.

We provide many services including job training, on the job training, GED Classes, counseling, assistance with prescriptions and more.

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

We thank all off the caring individuals, businesses, churches and nonprofit organizations who have contributed over the past 19 years investing in individuals less fortunate.
