Disaster Helping Hands has been in existence, as a 501 ( C ) 3, Tax Exempt Organization officially since 15 February 2006; although, we had been assisting families in 2005. As a small organization, our assistance is Disaster Focus and we concentrate our efforts on Mission Accomplishment. We have 3 members on our board, as required by Law, and operate primarily with Volunteers to accomplish our mission. Although, all Board Members are salaried positions, no member has received a salary or any form of pay to-date. All funds collected to-date has been dedicated to Mission Accomplishment and our Building Project. As of August 2013, we have given away over 225 tons of Appliances, Food and Furniture to Families and Communities that meet our requirements.
