A Helping Rock, Inc. is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Community Outreach Organization.
Originally established in Harford County, Maryland in 2005, A Helping Rock also referred to as "Piedra De Ayuda", soon became a valuable liaison between Harford County government and the Latino community.
In 2010, one of the founding members of A Helping Rock, Eddy Reyes established a transitional housing program in the area of Zephyrhills in order to assist the homeless community. The program was made possible via the financial support of A Helping Rock Thrift store located in Dade City Florida. This included many other programs such as Children's Fun Day, Restoring the Value of Our Seniors, and Cleaning Up the Streets of Dade City, and Helping Rock Food Pantry. It later went on to establish new programs like Partners in Hope where disaster victims, homeless individuals, and families in need could obtain vouchers for free clothing and household items.
Many of these programs were intended to provide fellowship and mentoring opportunities for children and senior citizens.
In 2013, Eddy Reyes turned over the operations of the Florida Headquarters to it's management team, and relocated to the state of Alaska in order to finish his pre-med requirements and consider entering Medical School. In the process he was able to witness many deficiencies and gaps between government agencies, businesses, the school system, and non-English speakers. There appeared to be a lack of cultural, social, and economic understanding of the U.S. system; thus, resulting in less production for both the adults and their children.
The results were a new A Helping Rock chapter (HR Alaska) that is currently spear headed by the same volunteer director Eddy Reyes. At present HR Alaska provides interpreting, and translating services for the city of Juneau Southeast Alaska which includes there court system, along with advocacy and immigration services.
As always, our outreach efforts are supported by individual donations, grants, contributions from churches, other non-profit organizations, and the proceeds of A Helping Rock Thrift Store located in Dade City, Florida.
