Who We Are

HELPING HANDS FOR THE HOMELESS OF ROCKLAND is a not-for-profit organization that provides Safe Haven for men and women 18 years and older during the cold season and a broad range of homeless services throughout the year, including case management and assistance with the employment, housing, and health goals of our guests. Our Outreach Center provides laundry, showers and men's and women's clothing, free of charge. The Outreach Center is located in the United Church of Spring Valley (11 E. Church St. Spring Valley, NY) and is open Monday and Wednesday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm.

Important notice!

This year the Rockland County Emergency Warming Center will be managed by Catholic Charities Community Services.

Helping Hands has suspended the Safe Haven until further notice while we consider whether to reopen it on a rotating basis.

If you need shelter, please contact Catholic Charities Community Services of Rockland: (845) 942-5791 or the Department of Social Services.


Contact us at (845) 356-0100 or info@helpinghandsofrockland.org for more information about our services.
