I LIKE what this charity is doing for children who otherwise would be ON THE STREETS...it's cold out there and UNSAFE...they have to know they matter to someone! The charity is building SELF worth and esteem and teaching real LIFE SKILLS...:DAVID'S HOUSE" is where and how...There is none TALLER than the man who STOOPS to help a child"...PLEASE go to www.GoFundMe.com/5f2eqo and if you like what this ministry is about, please help them help those lesss fortunate than YOU or ME. "WITH GOD all things are possible." Please help!!! Visit @ helpinghands-sc.org or contact: P.O.Box 26601 Akron, OH 44319

I left new york state, without a penny in my pocket, a victim of a natural disaster...just the shirt on my back..disabled with a chronic illness and in my 60's...i ended up in summit county and a ms. phyllis had a heart, and had time to lend me a helping hand...found me a disability apartment and helped furnish it...i literally had nothing...but now i have hope. My illness has put me in the hospital and having no family here, i was truly alone and down in spirits...as it turns out ms. phyllis charity is called "HELPING HANDS". I am here today and doing well (even have a cat) because another human being really cared...Thank God there are people like her and the charity she founded and is a active person in it...otherwise, i might have given up and being overwhelmed even thought about ending my life! But ms. phyllis never gave up on me and kept trying to help me help myself!She told me she has followed alot of her clients thru months and years, staying in contant and caring...She does alot with little, anyone wanting to help her help others, send any donation to: Helping Hands, inc. P.O. Box 26601 Akron, Ohio 44319 or visit at: www.helpinghands-sc.org

I came from Detroit in the middle of the nite with my 5 babies...HELPING HANDS, inc. CHARITY helped me find a house, completely furnished it too! It was this time of year, nov./dec. and the chsrity brought a christmas tree presents and xmas dinner...God bless them! They really came out, the founder IN PERSON and gave me and mine a HOME, HOPE and a HOLIDAY...I would tell anyone to please help ms. phyllis (founder) for she really does put her heart into helping and followed up with me to see how we were doing...i got a laptop and still go to her site...www.helpinghands-sc.org SHE and her orginization, HELPING HANDS, inc. really does help WOMEN and their CHILDREN!

HELPING HANDS, inc. first got my attention when a good friend of mine and her husband were going thru some really ROUGH times...he had a terminal diagnosis and she was trying to keep the family with small children in their home...Phyllis Byrd (founder) made several house payments, almost completely furnished the home, brought a christmas tree and presents and dinner..until the father got on a disability check! It gave them HOPE to face an uncertain future...the orginization helps year 'round and has a website that shows what projects are going on...visit at: www.helpinghands-sc.org...phyllis and her volunteers attempt to help whoever God puts in her path..i have heard many stories of the babies she's helped and women and very sick people...the charity is a 501.3c, tax deductible and accepts vehicles, gift cards, monetary donations, etc...

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

several different time periods from 2003 thru the latest in May 2012

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help raise awareness of the charity and the good it does each and every day...GET THE WORD OUT about HELPING HANDS, inc. WEBSITE and how to contact ms. Phyllis to DONATE...P.O. box 26601 Akron, Oh 44319

How did you learn about this organization?

From first hand seeing and hearing from everyday people that were helped and in the Akron Beacon Journal, West Side Leader, and the Suburbanite and Medina Gazzette...who ran various articles thru the years about Helping Hands...
