With the help of dedicated volunteers, Albany Helping Hands encourages learning and hands on support for the individuals staying in the shelter.

Albany Helping Hands welcomes those in the community willing to share their skills, knowledge, caring, time, and love in lending assistance to giving those less fortunate a way to get a hand up in life.  We are a faith based organization founded on Christian values in love for our brothers and sisters and value in every human soul.  Volunteering is an important part in being able to provide our guests with their needs and in fulfilling our mission.
