Helpline House was founded in 1968 as a food bank in response to the "War on Poverty." It has evolved over the years to include an array of social services, such as social work case management and mental health counseling.

Helpline House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a network of critical social services through a number of different programs – including children services, senior services, financial assistance and a food bank. The agency's programs help more than 2,500 people every year. We invite you to become part of a circle of giving and receiving help. Neighbor helping neighbor, one neighbor at a time.

Helpline House's Mission Statement

Helpline House offers an umbrella of social services and invites the community to become a part of a circle of giving and receiving help - Neighbor helping Neighbor.

Black Lives Matter

Helpline House recognizes and mourns racial acts of violence against Black communities. 


We work tirelessly to build a healthy and whole community, and yet we recognize today, more than ever, that we cannot truly be a healthy and whole community if racism and bias exist in any form.


Helpline House stands in solidarity with Black Americans and against violence and systemic racial inequities.
