June 20, 2022 Events & News

It’s our 23rd anniversary and we’re feeling the pride! Back in 1999, an impressive group of concerned citizens observed a need and acted. Together they developed a program for the senior citizens of this community to provide services that made it possible for those seniors to continue living independently and enjoy greater quality of life. Twenty-three years later, Barnesville Area HELPERS has evolved into a highly utilized and thriving non-profit community organization. 

We are deeply grateful for the ongoing support we receive from this community, our volunteers, our Board of Directors, and our funding sources and donors. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
