Nevada Helping Hands
Nevada's Helping Hands Program (NHH) reaches out to our underprivileged children, youth, and families of Washoe County. We donate food, clothing, supplies, tutoring, counseling, and funds for activities.
Director, Jessica Koltz, has implemented several hands-on events and activities for children and youth who would otherwise exist without!
