Mission Statement

Help for People, Inc., is made up of a group of dedicated Christians with a mission to help the people in our Long Island community who need help on our troubled economic times.

With God’s love and compassion, our goal is to make sure that no one goes without the basic necessities to live such as food, clothing, furniture, cooking gas, utilities and heat are among some of the items we offer to those who come to us for assistance.

We offer nutritious food from our food pantry to make a hot and healthy meal at home. In the future we hope to offer prepared hot meals to those who are unable to cook.

At our thrift store we offer affordable clothing, shoes and housewares. We also offer store vouchers to those who qualify to shop free.

Help For People, Inc. works closely with other organizations to refer individuals and families for services such as counseling, mentoring, teen parenting, literary programs, employment and medical services.

Whatever the need is, Help for People, Inc. is ready, willing and able to assist. Our mission is to help people to become self-sufficient and empowered to become a productive member of our LI community. In return we encourage those who we have assisted to extend their services to others in the community who may be in need.

Our future plans are to incorporate an after-school program for kids. A community center for the teens and tweens to have a safe place to go after-school. We hope to offer snacks, games, movies, homework help, counseling and good fellowship for the children.

As the Lord leads us, we will offer whatever services are needed in the community.

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
