Support Our General Fund

Founded in 1998 as a modest soup kitchen, Boca Helping Hands now helps more than 27,000 people each year, making us one of the largest service providers in Palm Beach County.

Annually, we distribute more than 80,000 pantry bags, serve nearly 90,000 hot meals, expand healthcare access, provide weekend meals for food-insecure kids, assist working families with the rising costs of childcare, and help the unemployed and under-employed begin new careers.

We manage all programs with a small staff of 18 employees, supported by 300+ active volunteers. In April 2020, Charity Navigator named Boca Helping Hands a Four-Star Charity for the 14th consecutive year - so you can rest assured that your donations will be put to the best use. We invite you to join us in aiding the underserved in our community.

COVID-19 Update: During the COVID-19 crisis, the demand for our feeding programs has doubled. Boca Helping Hands is committed to serving the growing numbers of people in need via a drive-thru lunch and pantry bag pick-up service that complies with social distancing guidelines. Our Job Mentoring and Job Training programs are continuing virtually to meet the growing demand for employment assistance, and we're offering limited financial aid for childcare and emergencies on a case-by-case basis. We appreciate any support that you can provide in these unprecedented times.
