   Handy-Hands Ministries was first started in 2003 by Fr. Bob to fill needs of people who find themselves in one of two unique circumstances too often present in communities all over the world. 

     First, just as in the story of the good Samaritan, there are people all over the world that need critical kinds of help on small projects.  These folks are often in financial situations where they cannot afford to pay for the help they need.  We will try to help these folks at no cost based on our available resources or donations we can get from others to help.

     Second, many people need help on small projects around their home or business, however, large commercial contractors are unable and/or unwilling to take on these less profitable projects.  These projects can be as simple as yard work, or more complex such as installing cabinets, putting up partitions, fixing appliances or minor vehicle repair. Tax deductible donations of suggested amounts or more are accepted to. 

      Handy-Hands can do many of those small jobs that you can't get to such as yard work, calking windows, repairing broken glass, cleaning, touch up painting or whole room painting, cleaning gutters, and putting up or taking down holiday decorations, cleaning out attics, basements, and garages and so much more.  Below are some of the many small projects that we can get done for you when you can't get them done yourself and the same time your tax-deductible contributions go to helping spread the teachings of Jesus and the love of the Holy Spirit wherever they are needed.
Kitchen and Bath Room Projects

We can solve almost any of your kitchen and bath projects from counter repair and replacement, to fixing leaky faucets, to replace flooring or adding ceramic tile back splashes around above your counters.  We can fix those awful cracking joints around the edge of your tub/shower or repair damaged fiberglass or ceramic tubes, toilets and sinks

Materials are always just actual costs (including taxes) and work costs cannot be lower!!!

But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?
1 John 3:17
Like the carpenter tools Jesus used to build, helping others with handy tasks is the tools that build faith and demonstrate the teachings of Jesus to others.
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works?.... Can that faith save him? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. James 2:14 & 17
When others need a little help in getting their work done, Jesus showed us that we need to be there to ease their burdens.

"And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink."
Luke 5:7 
Unexpected events can overcome any of us if we forget we are children of the same Holy Spirit.  Even the disciples occasionally need the assistance of expert when life got stormy and things need to be fixed and battened down.  John 6:19
