April Davis - Director
"I love the journey with our clients!
I love seeing them accomplish a dream, reach a goal, land that job, or achieve something they thought was impossible. Most of my adult life was spent working for different media outlets. I started out with non profit work as a board member, but soon realized I wanted to do more. When you choose a career you love, you'll never work a day in your life. That's never been more true for me!"
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
mission & vision
It's never too late to start fresh.
You can do it, We can help!

I am thankful for what High Plains Helping Hand does in the community and wanted to be a part of that to give back to those who may just need a bit of help overcoming obstacles. This organization is a chance to see people take that bit of help and become a successful part of our society.
Education is the most powerful weapon
which you can use to change the world.
1984 - Who founded HPHH?
2001 - Angel donation from GlobalCom funds outreach for west Africa division.
2016 - High Plains Helping Hand transitions into an education and career based non-profit to benefit the needs in the community.
2017 : We began a Dinner and Donation fundraiser. We partnered with Pizza Hut and received 10% of every order that mentioned HPHH. We also had volunteers from Borger High School that participated in "Pie a Teacher in the Face". Students paid $5 a plate to throw whip cream pies at any teacher they chose. Several students participated and it was a great night of fun and pizza! We hope to do it again in 2019.
2018 - HPHH assisted many of the students that were in the first EMT-B class offered by Stinnett EMS. The class started in January of 2018 and ended in May 2018. Four of our clients are now certified EMTs and two of them have been hired as full time employees at Stinnett EMS!
HPHH is very proud of our clients that have begun their journey of getting a GED. Many have already completed this journey and several more have just started. We are always excited and celebrate with our clients that finish all four portions of the GED test! We want to thank Frank Phillips College for the fantastic partnership we have with them!
We also have clients that have completed courses such as cosmetology, welding, and nursing. These clients are now working in Hutchinson County earning a sustainable income.
