A Message to the Community from Board President Mike Davis and Executive Director Don Sparks

First, we want to thank you for your continued and vital support of Albany Helping Hands (AHH).


You have been at the forefront of the significant community involvement and support we have received for over 40 years, helping us provide shelter, food, clothing, and services to Albany's homeless population.


In the beginning, our founder, pastor Lester Bailey, began providing peanut butter sandwiches and shelter at his small church.


Now, with the support of people like you, AHH provides three nutritious meals daily, shelter, and services to over 100 homeless guests, which will almost certainly grow.
