Our primary mission is to furnish food to hungry people in need while encouraging self-sufficiency. Helping Hands is the largest emergency food pantry in Berkeley County. Last year we provided over 325,000 meals to approximately 12,000 people.

Description:
Helping Hands of Goose creek is a small non profit organization created to address the hunger issues in this community. We are able to assist clients with food supplements (which provides them with 7-10 days worth of food). We currently partner with Trident Literacy Association to provide mandatory budgeting classes, on site computer classes, as well as a GED program that our clients can elect to participate in. A Benefit Bank representative is on site to process applications from clients wanting to apply for food stamps, medicaid, or medicare. We also serve as a resource for outside service agency referrals.

History:
Helping Hands of Goose Creek was established in 1989 and has been in continuous operation since as a crisis assistance center in Goose Creek. The organization was originally created as a collaboration of the Goose Creek Clergy Association to address the hunger problems in this community.
