Operation HELP provides residents of St. Croix County with financial assistance, a place for personal support, and connections to community resources to alleviate short-term economic crises.


The news is out!  Operation HELP and Hudson Area Backpack and Food Programs are working to create a new home for coordinated, comprehensive programs to help meet the basic needs of local families and individuals who are experiencing financial hardship. Located in the former Norlake building in downtown Hudson, the new center will house existing and expanded programs of both organizations and include:

  • A resource center for the basic needs supplies and emergency financial services.
  • Space for a permanent Fresh Harvest free grocery store.
  • A volunteer work area for traditional backpack and curbside pick-up food distribution.
  • Storage for food and other supplies.
  • Office space and parking for additional nonprofit organizations.
  • Office space which can be leased to outside commercial interests and generate income for the nonprofits to sustain and contribute to the organizations’ missions.

A capital campaign is underway to raise funds to purchase and make modifications to the building in hope of having facility ready for move-in as early as December 2022. Watch for additional details in the coming months or visit https://bit.ly/UnderOneRoofcampaign for more information.

As a result of the assistance we received, we were able to maintain our self-respect and not have to sell our furniture to raise money to pay the rent.

We are a “Meets Standards” Organization!

We are pleased to share that Operation HELP is now a Charities Review Council “Meets Standards®” organization! Nonprofit organizations earn this designation by voluntarily participating in Charities Review Council’s extensive review process which is based on the Council’s 25 Accountability Standards.  This process examines four key areas: Public Disclosure, Governance, Financial Activity, and Fundraising. By meeting these standards, Operation HELP has demonstrated that its practices, policies, and procedures are aligned with widely accepted standards of nonprofit accountability. Operation HELP’s full  report is available online at www.smartgivers.org, and the organization will also be listed in Charities Review Council’s bi-annual Smart Giver Newsletter.

Diaper Program

Operation HELP received funding for a “Diaper Bank” for all residents of St. Croix County earlier this year.  Once a month families in St. Croix County can come to the Operation HELP office  and receive 80 – 100 diapers for each child.
