Hands to Help Seniors

Mission

Our mission is to assist homebound, physically challenged senior citizens with limited financial means to stay in their home as long as practically possible and to live longer, healthier, higher quality lives by facilitating the provision of and subsidizing the cost of private duty personal attendant services related to private duty care, companion care, personal care, homemaking services, transportation, assistance with paying bills and home maintenance and by providing education and access to resources that will allow such senior citizens to identify and use related programs and services to obtain assistance needed to allow them to stay in their home.

The Big Idea

Hands to Help Seniors reaches out to isolated seniors in need of medical care, but who have barriers to finding and maintaining the care they need. This organization provides individual service to connect seniors with personal care attendants for daily needs, empowering them to stay in the comfort of home for as long as possible. The nonprofit’s Big Idea focuses on getting dental care for seniors, as Medicare does not pay for dental services.

This community is fortunate indeed to have an organization like H2HS in its midst. Their act of kindness not only gave me back my peace of mind but may have saved my life. Words don't seem adequate to express my gratitude.

- Helga Fallay

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
