Inspired by the growing Village movement, a small committee began meeting in 2015 to discuss creating a grassroots organization to assist our seniors in aging in our community. Eventually, our founders decided to ask for Town Council of our formation as an official Town Committee. This was approved in 2017.
Helping Hands University Park is a Town Committee with the mission to help residents remain in their homes as they age. We do this through volunteer services, educational programs and social activities, and partnerships that complement our mission. By engaging a wide range of residents, we enhance the quality of life for the entire community.
Volunteers are the backbone of HHUP. The dedication, skills and experiences you bring to HHUP and the quality of services you provide will fulfill the needs of our members and will benefit our entire University Park community.
