HANDS History

Hands Across Middlesex Interfaith Outreach, Inc. held its first official Board of Directors' meeting at Calvary Baptist Church in October 1992.  The following individuals were founders:  Bud Rutkowski, Jack and Jane Fackler, Purcell Scott, Joe and Janice Green, Bob Evans, Betty Bray, O. C. Shank, Ruth Wilder, Carroll Holmes, and Sid Stallings.  Penny Larson served as a long time president of HANDS and was instrumental in implementing many of the programs provided by HANDS. 


From the beginning, the main focus of HANDS was to improve living conditions for Middlesex residents. Within a few years, HANDS had built six homes and completed renovations on about 20 additional homes.  In 1994, housing construction was turned over to Habitat for Humanity. 


Today, Hands Across Middlesex continues many programs including a food pantry that originated with individual efforts. The Clothing Barn was established under the leadership of Jane Fackler and the Furniture Barn (Bart's Barn) was started by Bart Palmer assisted by Annette Greenwood.  Perry Mason and Jack Fackler helped design modular ramps that could be easily removed when no longer used. This program continues under the current model of Emergency Home Repair and Ramp Installation.


HANDS has relied heavily upon its donors and volunteers over the years.  Their efforts are essential in enabling HANDS to continue providing services to Middlesex County residents. We hope you will join our efforts as we continue to adapt to the needs of our neighbors.
