At Cy-Fair Helping Hands, our goal is to serve the people of our community who need a helping hand, in addition to serving the homeless community. Hard times can arise through a variety of situations such as an illness, a divorce, a job loss, a natural disaster, and as we’ve all seen, through a pandemic. CFHH is here to provide that needed hand when individuals and families are struggling.
If you need help with rent or utilities call 2-1-1 or visit www.findhelp.org. We do not provide assistance with rent or utilities.
