Helping Families

Oilfield Helping Hands has provided assistance to many families in financial crisis due to medical and other serious circumstances. OHH is here to help oilfield families in need.  OHH has awarded more than $5 million to recipients in need since its launch in 2003.

To qualify for assistance, applicants must meet specific criteria. Applications for assistance are reviewed and voted upon by the Grant Review Committee. 

OHH helps families in the E&P sector of the oilfield who have found themselves in financial crisis through no fault of their own.


Applications for assistance are submitted to the Chairman of the Grant Review Committee by OHH active members. At the next monthly meeting of the committee, the application is reviewed and voted upon. However, the OHH President, with the Grant Review Committee Chairman’s concurrence, may also grant emergency relief up to $2,000 without Grant Committee review.

Here are just a few of the many faces of real people whose lives have been touched by the efforts of Oilfield Helping Hands and its members.
