When HELP Can't Wait exists to supply very current needs for the comfort and convenience of nursing home residents that cannot be readily funded by the facility where they reside. With Health care costs and minimum wage rising, these facilities are stretched to fund the regulated needs. "Quality of Life" items are simply the last to be funded as a result. The average stay in a long term facility has dropped from 3 years to 2.5. The target population are all at/or below the poverty level. Today's residents simply Cannot Wait for Funding - We Must Act NOW!!
Our Now Famous Tri-Annual Yard Sale is scheduled for 15 March - mark your calendars. From 8:00 until 1:00 pm.
Lots of good stuff for sale. Yard equipment, décor items, books, small appliances (some brand new) - something for everyone. Beautiful lamps and lots of computer components.
Come see us - in our parking lot at 3814 Commercial Court, Across for the Martinez post office and at the END of the street.

We are proud to announce that Helen McVicker, Founder and President of When HELP Can't Wait was presented with the prestigious 2014 'Jefferson Award for Public Service' in January. She will travel to Washington D.C. this summer to compete at the National Level.
The winning of this Award is important because it can serve to bring visibility to the problems and needs of our nursing home residents living without family support to provide for their basic needs.

We need VOLUNTEERS! We are in need of volunteers to visit residents once a week in the homes, we need help in our office areas desperately. It's a lot of work to handle as many donations as we process and we need 'helping hands'. If you have from one hour to four a week, we can use your help. Lots of type jobs available. We'll fit you to what you would enjoy most! Call us for an interview appointment today!! 706-855-0715.

We have a NEW address - We are just down the street from our old office at 3814 Commercial Court. Still across from the Martinez Post Office. We're in the CUL-DE-SAC and next door now to MANER Glass Company. We have purchased LOADS of signs - look for our HELPING HANDS in green and black. Just keep coming until you reach the end of the street - and that's us. Everyone gives up before getting to the end of the street - Trust me -- we are there - just a half of block further - please don't give up at the top of the hill.

Our website is growing with us! Thanks to the efforts of Splice Media, we have been able to revamp our website. We rely heavily on our website as a resource for gaining volunteers and receiving donations that help us meet the needs of nursing home residents in the CSRA area. We are very excited about the changes we have made to our online home, and we hope you enjoy our new website.
