Who We Are

Helping Hands of Tennessee is a 501 c(3) organization headquartered in Jackson, Tennessee. Our mission is to improve healthy outcomes in the West Tennessee area by helping people to live longer, healthier, and more active lives.  Since it’s launch in January 2016, we have saved consumers $1,200,000 in medical expenses by providing healthcare resources with a family-centered approach to low income families.

Our Family-centered Approach to Healthcare

The vision of our organization is for individuals to have access to medical and dental services as well as educational resources to increase healthy outcomes within the communities we serve. Our long-term plan is to serve multiple locations where medical gaps exist to meet the healthcare needs of patients. We collaborate with other organizations to educate families about all available resources that may be beneficial for their health and well-being through a full needs assessment intake process. We believe that by supplying these resources at a reduced price or no cost within under-served communities, we can improve healthy outcomes through our approach.

Our services include an affordable dental clinic, mobile dental services, eyeglass assistance, Medicare counseling, Medicare enrollment and home-buyer workshops.
