Our Mission Statement
As a witness to the love of God through Jesus Christ, the Helping Hand Rescue Mission seeks to improve the spiritual and temporal conditions of the people and communities we serve by providing excellent service to all who come, whether they be rich or poor, high or low social status.
The Mission was founded in 1965 by Reverend J.A. Gaines, his wife, Reverend Rose Marie Gaines, and her mother, Florence E. Meringola.
After witnessing local poverty conditions first hand, they invested everything that they had with the view that if they could help even one person it was worth the investment.
52 years later our work continues under the direction of Rev. Kimberly Gaines-Gambino. She also serves as Pastor of Half Hollow Community Church in Dix Hills, New York.
