Local Assistance 

Every Friday from 1100 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. we open our doors to residents of Putnam County who are in need of assistance with buying food or paying utility bills. 

What we offer:

We offer a $25 food voucher, once every 6 months.


We require that you visit Helping Hands prior to receiving assistance from us.  We also require valid personal identification and Social Security card.

Availability of services is determined by availability of funding.  The services we offer, dollar amounts given, and guidelines may change at any time, for any reason.
