About Operation Help

Operation HELP has been assisting residents of St. Croix County for more than 30 years.  The founders wanted to provide a Christmas experience for children in the Hudson area whose families were struggling financially.  From that humble beginning, the organization evolved to meet emerging needs of our neighbors.

Today we serve residents of St. Croix County and offer short-term financial aid to those in a crisis situation.  Operation HELP’s assistance focuses on rent, utilities and car repairs to help keep people in their homes.  We also connect people with other agencies or services, such as local food shelves, social service agencies, government agencies and specialized referrals.  Operation HELP is a volunteer driven program with over 95% of our resources used for client assistance.

Clients can inquire about our services by calling or by stopping by our office.  We are located in downtown Hudson and our hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. and Thursday evening between 5:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
