Helping Hands History

 


 

Agency History

Helping Hands started in 1976 as a support group for parents of developmentally disabled children. Due to the lack of services in the area, these parents joined together and provided a Summer Camp Program for 20 of their own children.

 

Two camp sessions later, in 1978, Helping Hands became official. It is incorporated as a private, nonprofit agency and received tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service. Both events occurred because of increased interest and need to provide programs for handicapped individuals in the Upper Montgomery County area.

 

1978 also saw the beginning of the agency's Adult Socialization Recreation Program, which provides opportunities to developmentally disabled adults to participate in integrated community recreational activities by attending local events like Philadelphia Phillies games, dinner shows and museums. Consumers broaden their experiences and acquire improved social skills and behaviors. By attending the program, each Consumer improves the skills necessary to function in the community at large.

 

In July of 1983, due to a pressing need in the area for vocational rehabilitation of developmentally disabled adults, Helping Hands, Inc. started its Training and Industrial Enterprise Program. This program provides instruction to severely and moderately disabled adults in pre-job and job skills. The goal for each individual is for him or her to reach their maximum vocational potential and hopefully attain an independent job in the community.

 

In February of 1998, in response to the growing concern of the aging of individuals with developmental disabilities, we opened a new licensed Aging Program to provide services for those individuals over the age of 60. This program is available for non-handicapped adults as well as those with developmental disabilities. 

 

In July 1999 we expanded our menu of services by having Macoby Creek Center, Inc join Helping Hands. Macoby Creek Center is our first step into providing residential services in our community. In June 2000 we opened Hanover Square, our second home, in April 2002, our third home, Charlotte Corner, in November 2005, Serenity Drive became our fourth home and in 2010, we opened our fifth home, Maugers Mill. In 2017, we added Rambler Avenue as our sixth home.

 

Helping Hands provides services to over 300 developmentally disabled persons and their family members. 

 

Our continuing mission is to develop and provide quality programs to meet the special needs of the handicapped individuals within our community service area.
