Why We’re Here


With support from the Auburn Hills community, Helping Hands creates a community that thrives, by extending a helping hand to burnout victims and those struggling to make ends meet. Donations and fundraisers make it possible for us to provide a range of services that help our neighbors.

The Auburn Hills Firefighters Helping Hands Association has been helping the citizens of Auburn Hills and the surrounding community for over 75 years. Originally established as the Goodfellows organization in 1944, we have made it a priority to help those in need. As a 501(c)(3) run entirely by a volunteer board, all donations are tax deductible and go directly to helping the community.
