UPDATED: 4/8/18

 

 

No, not that thing our leader talks about that is demolishing our nation’s tourism industry. I’m talking about a wall to keep an elderly family warm this winter.

 

Today we were told a story about an elderly Hawaiian in Texas that had no running water so she was driving back and forth 5 miles to the local lake to fill up buckets. Right away we went to meet her and connect her with neighbors that would deliver her water until the plumbing was fixed. Next, we removed the foundation covering, dug out the flooded rubbish, dried up the crawl space and found the ruptured pipes.

After a few attempts, we replaced the needed parts with success, loaded up to leave and went to update the nice lady. Lani Burns then takes me around back and asks “can you do anything about this?”

 

So, over the next few weeks will are raising money to cover the costs for lumber, insulation, plastic sheeting, plywood, screws, dump fee’s and volunteer lunches and transportation.

 

If you can help, re-share this flyer and/or paypal to: tfrentz@hotmail.com

Blessings to all,
T

(Hawkins, Texas) THE EAST TEXAS TOWN OF HAWKINS IS ESTABLISHING A LEADING COMMUNITY PRESENCE TO DEFEAT POVERTY.

The Helping Hands Network (HHN) founder has spent 2 years building a support network in the East Texas community of Hawkins Texas. Business partners have been established; volunteers have been organized and trained; and now a community Education center is ready to be developed.

First option to purchase the community center property has been offered to HHN and they need to raise $35,000 to finance and improve it.

 

(You can visit this link on FLIKR to scroll your cursor and look around the studio space!)
https://tinyurl.com/ycxr3tdj

The location of the property is perfect for the newest HHN addition because there are several groups working together to improve the impoverished neighborhood.

The Hawkins / Holy Lake Ranch area churches work together to support one central Helping Hand Mission to provide food, shelter and household emergency items to those in need. This mission is one block from the HHN education center.

The Hawkins area Chamber of Commerce is developing a business incubator location to provide job training to help improve the poverty and homeless problems. This location is 2 blocks from the HHN site.

The City of Hawkins has developed a community park with updated features on the same street as the HHN site.

There is a partnering motel on the same street that can provide emergency shelter to those homeless during disaster relief situations.

The HHN is working with these groups by providing business skill training, survival workshops, wellness classes and other wonderful events at the community education center property. The two story complex is perfect for the program.

 

(You can pause the youtube video & drag your cursor to look around the property.)

The upper level provides office space, storage and a wellness studio where visitors have events like yoga and movie/game nights. The lower level will be developed for emergency shelter, group meals, classroom training and art studio space. A community garden is in the second year of growth on the surrounding property.

IF enough money is not raised by March 2018, the property will be sold to the public and the community center and garden program will be forced to start over so please donate if you can. Direct deposits via paypal ID (tfrentz @ hotmail) are preferred to accelerate the processing time. 

Thank you for your consideration.

HH Logo 1

The Helping Hands Network started as the vision of one but quickly evolved into a global movement.

In the fall of 1995, the founder, Tim Frentz was studying the role of business and advertising in society. He and a close friend got together to form a technology company.

In 1997, at age 20, Tim nearly escaped death after being hit by a car while riding his motorcycle. After nearly 2 years of experiencing how technology could help the disabled, Tim had become temporarily paralyzed and used his own computer solutions for more then a year of recovery.

subarufront1

 

TechCare, a specialty division was created during this time to provide in home technology training as well as other assisted living solutions. His home town paper even did an editorial feature on the business success.

All appeared well, but then some major changes occurred. Tim and his father, Jerry, were very close and often adventured together. A few days a week they would escape to their home town area to work on rebuilding Jerry’s dream home. The two of them had trusted Tim’s financial partner to invest their nest egg money while they focused on their projects. One day, they went to ask for a few thousand and were told they couldn’t have it and no legal procedure would help them recover it.

Jerry’s stress, as well as his poor health, quickly wore him down. Jerry became disabled by a series of heart problems and Tim was left with the overwhelming tasks of finishing the home build by himself. He also had a major project in the works with his own country home, as well as the troubles between him and his partner back at the office.

Jerry passed away in 2005 after battling cancer and heart problems. His father and his grand parents left him money and praised him to make a difference in the world. Frentz resigned from corporate america and formed what is now the Helping Hands Network.

JerryGrave05JerryFlag

Before he could even begin planning to invest his inheiritance, his business partner emptied the companies bank account and Tim was faced with a massive decision. Either pay his staff that dedicated their days to his company or, turn his back on them and retain his funding for the non-profit endeavor.

Tim choose the right thing and paid the staff. He then established the netvibes.com/HelpingHandsNetwork website and social media to enable those in need of help with all the contacts available to provide the needed support.

Frentz then liquidated the company and sold as much of his personal items as he could before packing his van and motorcycle up for life on the road.

 

NOParkCamp1

 

And on the road he has remained since 2007. The first destination was to help a man in deep depression in MN. His wife had died from a seizure when a doctor gave her the wrong type of medicine and his home burned down shortly after.

The next stop was in rural northern Nebraska. Tim would spend a year helping form several renewable energy ventures with a man whom was trying to do the best he could alone. This time also allowed Frentz many opportunities to volunteer on the areas Native reservations and to help local farmers with construction projects.

In 2009, Tim turned south and followed the rivers until reaching New Orleans where he would spend a month aiding hurricane Katrina victims. He was asked to speak at a conference at the VoDoo Festival and then with the same promoter at Austin’s South By Southwest.

From Texas, Frentz was sponsored to visit LA and the Island of Maui and research the negative effects of United States capitalism on the native Hawaiian culture. Other projects included volunteering with local groups such as the Save Venice Beach Boardwalk Coalition.

In late 2010, he returned to projects between Nebraska and Texas. His help was then needed back in L.A.

Tim had just arrived in Los Angeles in 2011 when the Occupy movement began. Most of the fall, Tim dedicated his efforts to Occupy related events and causes. Here you see him and friends protesting for fair health care and middle class wealth distribution.

2011 Occupy Art

 

2012, provided many opportunities to give back to the lower class communities in East L.A. Tim volunteered with the city tree nursery and helped coach youth soccer. He was then requested to help with his current project in Nebraska where he is helping battle unfair debt practices by the IRS and friends with medical emergencies.

*What is the vision of Helping Hands Network – what kind of future do you want for
Lincoln?
Using technology to solve problems in our communities. Our supporters connect with any like minded people they meet and bring them into the network so we can make bigger impacts.

 

*What are the core values of Helping Hands Network – what values matter most for the journey toward that future?
Team work, minimization of waste, efficiency of resources and community sustainability

 

*What is the mission or mantra of Helping Hands Network – what does Helping Hands Network do to turn that future into a reality?
Over and over again through our social media outlets, I see our supporters working
together to create the needed changes. Our blog is full of stories and results that I
love sharing with anyone who contacts us through Netvibes.com/HelpingHandsNet

 

*How can people get involved with Helping Hands Network?
Social Media via the Netvibes.com/HelpingHandsNet

 

*What are your strengths and how do they play out in your personal life, at work, and in the community?

Motivation, leadership
My life and my work are one in the same. If yours are not then you are in the wrong
field. Every day we have an example of how our efforts motivate and lead in
communities everywhere. Using the foundation of the arts allows our reach to expand beyond comprehension. Be it our publications being read, song lyrics telling our stories, social media posts, podcast recordings, google picture albums, wordpress
blogs, youtube videos and so on.

 
*What core values does Lincoln put into action that make Lincoln a great community?

We are a national group and we are just getting started here in Lincoln but I have
already had a chance to network with great causes like the Chisholm organic dairy
farm, community garden groups, an IRS harassment case, injury and disability causes and a few others.

The Lincoln community has great opportunities if one knows where to look. This a prime example of using our social media tools. We build group activity pages on facebook and then use them to organize these community opportunities.

Being in a region where it is too cold to recreate outside 4 months out of the year
has built some not-so-healthy communal habits like the lack of interest in outdoor
group gatherings but for the most part, Lincoln is far more positive in the wellness
category then other communities of similar size and location.

 

*What is Lincoln’s message to the world and in what ways can we grow to make the world a better place?

Unfortunately, growing is not the answer. It is not human nature to understand that our population has long out numbered our resources. Survival instinct has created this too big to fail economy based on capitalism and money. I know my reply is off the intended path but I answer this question the same for every one who asks.

Everyone needs to grow their own food and create their own resources such as fuel and energy if we are ever to return the balance and “make the world a better place”.
