IN PERSON SERVICES
Life, especially facing a pregnancy decision, was never meant to be done alone. Helping Hands’ staff and volunteers are here to help and meet women and families where they are at in life. We call it #LifeTogether. The following services are offered at both Bluffton and Montpelier locations.
Making difficult life decisions and changes requires help. Women, men, and their families looking to tackle life goals, overcome difficult situations, or begin building healthier relationships with others, can be matched with a volunteer who will work directly with them to achieve those goals and overcome obstacles.
