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!!
The success of our mission relies solely on the funds and goods that are donated to us.
We have done our best to make it easy for anyone to contribute. If you would like to make a monetary donation, you may click "Donate Now" or mail a check or money order to 3814 Commercial Court Martinez, GA 30907.

Our latest PROGRAM
We have now been able to launch a long planned program of decorating resident's rooms in the nursing homes. We have beautiful things donated by the community and their pictures and bulletin board and other decor items brighten the rooms of those with no family to assist with that.
NEW AND ADDED VOLUNTEERS!!
