Sharing and Caring Hands is run by volunteers with few paid staff and relies solely on donations of time, goods, services and money from the community it serves. Mary Jo receives no salary. We do not accept Federal, State or United Way monies, but rely entirely on donations.
We accept donations of cash, food, clothing, house wares, sheets, towels and of course, your time. We always have a need for personal hygiene items. We gladly accept vehicles, in which we give to those in need. Sorry, we cannot accept furniture.
Because of our ongoing needs we especially appreciate monthly donations in any amount and are thankful to those who include this ministry in their wills, estates and planned giving. Please contact us on how this may be done.

Michelle, a mother of 3 children, came in to see we’d help pay the $150 fee for her to get her Certified Nursing Assistant certificate. She had struggled for years in low-wage jobs that wouldn’t pay the rent. This help enabled her to find a better paying job so she could support her family.
Many people who never finished high school and are ready to work on their GED. The fee for the test $120 and we gladly cover this for those who otherwise would not be able to take this next step in life.
John came in desperately needing someone to help pay for his medication. He has no medical insurance and a severe medical condition that requires him to be on medication to stay out of the hospital. His medicine cost $300, and he’d been all over the city trying to get help. We feel blessed to be able to help John stay healthy.
Steve came to see Mary Jo after he had completed his work training courses at a local school and had been hired for a construction position. Without the $50 to cover his steel-toe boots he was going to lose the position. This job is one of the first steps in becoming stable for Steve who is in recovery and wants to put his life back together after his struggle with addiction. These boots will be the start of a new life for Steve, as are the many other supplies we purchase for those getting back to work.
