In 1974 the Elizabethtown Ministerial Association assumed sponsorship of Helping Hand and continues in that capacity today. Helping Hand is governed by a 13-member Board of Directors. Four are elected each year and serve a three-year term.

Board members are selected from the community by a Nominating Committee of the board with the approval of the entire board and the Elizabethtown/Hardin County Ministerial Association. The final member of the board is the President of the Elizabethtown Ministerial Association each year.

In addition to the Board of Directors, Helping Hand's on-site staff includes an:

Executive Director
Assistant Director
Office Assistant
Clothing Room Supervisor
Furniture Shed Supervisor

The work of Helping Hand of the Heartland would not be possible without the assistance of our numerous volunteers that aid in the implementation of so many of our programs.
