The mission of The Helper Project is simple: To foster revitalization and beautification and promote cultural connections for the City of Helper, Utah.
Built at the turn of the century, these charming bungalows housed the miners and railroad workers of the time. With a grant from The Helper Project, these bungalows were painted, the retaining wall and steps redone, and the yards cleaned up. The character of these original houses has been maintained and elevated the experience of entering Main Street.
Many of the projects funded by The Helper Project are of a smaller scale. The clean-up and landscaping of the North entrance into town was just one of the many beautification projects completed.
Each year, The Helper Project hosts a fine art exhibition that showcases the work of artists from Helper and beyond. This exhibition serves as the largest fundraiser of the year for the organization and the money raised helps us fund other cultural events, like bringing the Utah Youth Symphony to Helper to perform at no cost to the community.
