The mission of our corporation is to provide food, clothing, and other assistance to the people in the Tarkington Prairie community after catastrophic events like hurricanes, floods, fires or otherwise, and also in times of great personal need. Our affiliated church, Rural Shade Baptist Church, ministers to the spirit and soul; Tarkington Helping Hands Inc ministers to earthly needs. Tarkington Helping Hand's mission also includes working to provide services needed in the community that are not currently available and working with our local school district to better meet the needs of the children of our community and their families.
Rural Shade Baptist Church was established in 1870. For 152 years, RSBC has faithfully served Jesus Christ & the community of Tarkington. Be a part of the history & future of RSBC by purchasing a Brick in our walkway. Honor a Loved one or Memorialize your family name.
