Welcome to Olney HELP

People Helping People

Welcome to Olney HELP! We have been providing food and financial assistance to local families for over 40 years. Our clients call with varied reasons for seeking aid. Many are living on fixed incomes or find their income isn’t keeping pace with rising basic expenses. Others have experienced prolonged illness or injury which leaves them temporarily unable to work. Today’s economic climate is forcing many people to request help for the first time.
