Helping Hands University Park (HHUP)

2021 HHUP-logo

Helping Hands University Park’s mission is to help residents remain in their homes as they age. We do this through volunteer services, educational programs and social activities, and partnerships with other individuals and organizations that complement our mission. By engaging a wide range of residents, we enhance the quality of life for the entire community.

HHUP was established as a special committee, appointed by the Council per Section 2-103 of the Town Ordinances. Like other special committees, its composition includes town residents and a Councilmember.

Visit the official HHUP website for our calendar of activities and additional information.
