ABOUT US

501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization

Priscilla’s Helping Hands, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1996 in response to the needs of the economically disadvantaged residents of San Bernardino’s Del Rosa area.  Disenfranchised and poverty-stricken, these individuals were in need of the resources necessary to function effectively in their community and beyond.  Recognizing the need then, and continuing the work now, Priscilla’s Helping Hands has expanded its area of service to include the greater San Bernardino City. 

Priscilla’s Helping Hands works to identify the needs of people in our community seeking to promote emotional, physical and educational growth.  The Priscilla’s Helping Hands mission is focused upon developing community need-based programs for low-income poverty stricken families to promote educational enhancements, responsible parenting, and self-sufficiency.
