In August 2011, Brandy Aschliman was led, by God, to open a Pregnancy Resource Center in Wells County. She would take the next year and form a steering committee which began making the calling a reality. In April 2012 a Board of Directors was elected, voting Brandy in as the Executive Director. In June, a location was secured in Bluffton; after six months of remodeling the doors opened in January 2013. In January 2015 God began bringing the idea of a second location to Blackford County. On November 24, 2015 God moved individual’s hearts and granted Helping Hands a building and an ultrasound machine in Montpelier; Renovations began right away and the second Helping Hands opened in May 2016 serving women and their families in the Blackford County area.
Helping Hands’ is committed to empowering women, men and their families, through relationships, to make life-affirming decisions, and for us to share with them the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Helping Hands desires to see women, men and their families find abundant life in Christ.
Our programs and services go beyond an appreciation for life and are designed to initiate and build relationships with women, men and their families. We desire abundant life (John 10:10) for those we serve; basic needs are met, positive relationships, healthy pregnancies and children, life affirming choices, and most importantly-eternal hope.
