Boca Helping Hands (BHH) is a community-based 501(c)(3) organization that was formed in 1998 by a group of local religious congregations. BHH first opened as a Food Center in November 1998, serving nutritious hot lunches three days a week and distributing bags of groceries to families. In January 2010, all operations were consolidated into the Remillard Family Resource Center located at 1500 NW 1st Court, Boca Raton 33432.
Today the Food Center is open six days a week with a Family Night Dinner on Thursdays. Meals are also delivered to homebound disabled and elderly individuals. Boca Helping Hands opened a Resource Center four years later in April 2002 with a focus on providing help for Boca Raton residents in crisis situations (e.g., eviction, utility cancellation, prescription medication).
We continue to see a large incease in the demand for our services. In response to this increased demand, we expanded the Job Training Program. We offer the following classes: Hospitality Training, Home Health Care Training, CDL (Comercial Truck Driving) Training, and Call Center Representative Training. Job Mentoring Center provides coaching, guidance and classes designed to help individuals who are seeking employment opportunities. These services complement our food and resource programs in our continuing effort to guide our clients to create self-sufficiency.
We are generously supported by individuals, corporations, foundations, schools and over 300 dedicated volunteers.
