Providing Help and Hope in Huntington, NY, since 1965
The Helping Hand Rescue Mission provides food, clothing, household items, education, prayer support, and counseling to those in need in our community.
The Mission was founded in 1965 by Reverends Jim and Rosemarie Gaines, and Rosemarie's mother, Florence E. Meringola. After witnessing local poverty conditions first hand, they invested everything that they had with the view that if they could help even one person it was worth the investment.

Welcome to the Helping Hand Rescue Mission! 

We are grateful for the opportunity to have served the Huntington, NY, community for over 47 years.  Through various programs, and with the support of many wonderful people, we have been able to meet a variety physical and spiritual needs. 

We have seen many success stories over the years!  It is so awesome to encounter those that we have helped and to see them want to help others in the same way. 

It is our prayer that we can continue to be a blessing to those with whom we encounter on a daily basis for many more years.  God willing, and with your continued support, many people will have a better life!

Thanks to those that support our ministry by praying for us, providing financial resources, and volunteering time to help make a difference in our community!
