Rockwall County Helping Hands is the main social service provider for Rockwall County residents. For 40 years the agency has been making a difference in the lives of Rockwall County residents.
The essence of Rockwall County Helping Hands is the Assistance and Referral Program. The assistance program provides Rockwall County residents in financial crisis with strategic financial assistance for critical needs. Assistance is available for electric, water, and gas bills as well as rent and mortgage payments. Access to our food pantry is also available for those needing assistance with food.
The Health Center of Helping Hands provides primary health services to those that are underserved in the Rockwall community. The Health Center is not free, but it provides affordable healthcare with low cost office visits and labs. Our Family Nurse Practitioners work with several local volunteer physicians and can provide referrals when necessary. Management of chronic diseases like diabetes, asthma and high blood pressure, annual sports physicals and flu shots are just some services provided at the health center.
The Thrift Store and Boutique of Helping Hands is the best bargain store in the Metroplex and East Texas. Donors are residents of Rockwall County who generously support the resale shops all year. From large used furniture and household goods to gently worn clothing for everyone, the store is fully stocked all of the time. The Boutique is filled with collectibles and other treasurers.
