In response to Christ's mission to help others, Compassionate Hands serves people in temporary crisis, by addressing immediate needs, fostering hope and guiding towards self-sufficiency.

Compassionate Hands was organized in 1994 by the Yukon Ministerial Alliance, business leaders and concerned citizens. Compassionate Hands reaches out to Yukon to strengthen cooperation in local mission work. Compassionate Hands serves Yukon as a clearing house, networking service and referral agency to provide services, support and to foster hope for self sufficiency. Compassionate Hands provides assistance to those in temporary crisis such as rental evictions; utility cutoffs; prescription needs; personal/baby care items; gas to work or doctor; and an affordable accessible van for area elderly and residents with disabilities.
 The Yukon area does not have public transportation.  The Care-A-Van is a lifeline to so many who are struggling to live independently.  Providing transportation to seniors (55+) and our citizens with disabilities, the Care-A-Van travels a 25 mile radius to life essential appointments and errands.  This includes but not limited to doctor and dentist appointments, dialysis, therapies, exercise, banking, shopping, hair stylists and various personal errands.  The program now has two accessible vans traveling in Yukon and the Oklahoma City metro area.
Goals for 2019:
  1. Audit (completed 3/18/19)
  2. Expand Care-A-Van service to 2 van (done 4/15/19)
  3. Grant research and submission to support 2nd van
  4. Celebrating 25 years of serving Yukon with letter campaign 
  5. Increase Annual Sponsors.
  1. Financing for our transportation program (Care-A-Van). With the expansion to two vans the budget will almost double to $65,794 per year.  
  2. Volunteers to maintain facilities and yard.
  3. Volunteer to oversee recycling (cans).
  4. Fundraising ideas and opportunities
CEO/Executive Director Statement
Our services help so many who are experiencing a temporary crisis in the Yukon area whether that be due to job layoff, illness or just "bad luck."  The local churches donate to Compassionate Hands to distribute funds to assist with utility cutoffs, rental evictions, gasoline to work or medical appointments, prescriptions and personal/baby items.
The Care-A-Van program transports our seniors and citizens with disabilities.  Without public transportation, so many would not be able to live independently without this service.  There is no fee; only a small suggested donation.  No one is ever refused service due to lack of funding.  We are proud to be part of this program through the Federal Department of Transportation Section 5310 to "increase the mobility of the elderly and individuals with disabilities in this country." 
Board Chair Statement

From the perspective of the Vice-Chair of Compassionate Hands, I note that Compassionate Hands continues to assist those people in temporary crisis by helping them pay rent, obtain temporary housing, gasoline, prescriptions and pay for their utilities. We are challenging ourselves to review the programs we offer to ensure we meet the needs of the people we serve.

Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program.
At the present time we are able to provide services to approximately 97% of those requested. It is our goal to transport as many clients as possible for as long as possible.
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state.
It is our goal to be able to extend services to 100% of those that request assistance. We would also like to provide transportation services to individuals that are attending the local Tech Center and Community College. There are a lot of people that would like to further their education but arent' able to because they don't have transportation to do so. I would like to hire someone to drive the van during the evenings to offer this program.
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact.
We receive our van from DHS Aging Services. We report to them monthly regarding how many clients we serve, how many trips we make and how many miles we drive. We also report income & expense for the program. Compassionate Hands paid 17% of the cost of the van and DHS paid the remainder. The maintenance, insurance, payroll & any other expense incurred on the van is the sole responsibility of Compassionate Hands, Inc.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success.
In 2012 we transported 1,540 elderly and disabled passengers and we traveled 28, 015 miles. We would not be able to transport many more clients because the van runs Monday - Friday, 8am - 4pm, with very little down time.
We provide assistance with utility cut-offs and rental evictions. Must meet agency requirements and live in Yukon/Yukon school district.
Population Served General/Unspecified Elderly and/or Disabled General/Unspecified
