Great organization that is helping families to help themselves. There is a genuine care and concern for individuals amongst the staff and leadership of Helping Hand House. Theres is not a job but a calling. Numerous family testimonials attest to the success of their programs.

My role with Helping Hand House is to help provide birthday and Christmas gifts for families. No child should ever go without a present on their birthday or for Christmas and HHH takes special care to ensure that doesn't happen.

My church group and I were looking for a charity activity we could do. We were only having this group for a short time and needed something that we could do quickly and easily. Helping Hand house makes volunteering so easy. They have several different options from cleaning to holiday gift baskets. My group really enjoyed the experience working with their knowlegable staff, and knowing that we were making a real difference in the lives of people in need. I think that this is a very worthwhile organization and am glad I was able to do a small part to help with the mission of Helping Hand house.

Helping Hand House provides comprehensive services to their clients. Besides housing solutions, staff works with each family independently to empower them to be economic sustainability. Besides the great work that the staff does on behalf of their clients, the organization is run efficiently and is accountable for all investments made from donors to support their mission. I am proud to support the work of Helping Hand House through volunteering and financial investments.

Our quilt group makes quilts for the beds of the families. We attended a breakfast fundraiser and toured the offices and learned about the programs. I was so impressed that my husband and I decided Helping Hand House would get a large chunk of our charitable contributions. I also met a young woman who received help from HHH and found out she was the daughter of an acquaintance. It's great to hear how her life has turned around. This group is transitional housing for homeless "families" and helps the families with food, shelter, budgeting, job training, and job placement. It's no free ride; they learn what's necessary to survive and keep themselves away from homelessness in the future.

The Great!

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

Meeting with recipients, volunteers and employees of HHH.

Ways to make it better...

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

Ask that monthly receipts be mailed semi-annually or yearly, but not every month as it wastes money in printing and postage. A person can see the deduction was made by looking at their account. Or perhaps an email confirmation instead.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Seeing that there is help for homeless families in our area.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I enjoy making warm and beautiful quilts for each family member and have heard how grateful the families are. Also, by giving cash we know that many families will be affected in a positive way.

My son, nephew and I were helped by Helping Hand House. With out their help I don't think I would have been able to get back on my own feet again. I have now been working for 4 years, albiet not in my original career, but at least working. I Have a home for my family. I cannot thank the enough for giving me back control of my life.

Without the aid of Helping Hand House, my son and I probably would not have made it through the rough time we did. But now we are on our own again, and doing well. I've seen the help they do, I've been one of the lives they have saved. I do everything I can now to help them as any way I can to pay it forward to others.

Helping Hand House is a wonderful organization. I volunteer by baking cakes for a couple of children every month. I support HHH because I feel they are helping people help themselves rather than just giving hand outs. I know that their work goes to bettering people for a lifetime and not just a short time. They hold classes to equip their families with the tools to move forward and be successful. A couple of the classes I have heard about are food canning and financial planning. This organization is one that I would support especially given this current economic state where people are losing their jobs and homes. HHH will ensure those people find both and hold onto them.

Add more homes so they can help more people. They can only do this with more donations and help from the community.

I have been a Board Member or volunteer for Helping Hand House over the past 15 years or more. I truly realized the value of HHH, a few years ago, when I was delivering a Christmas food/gift basket to a family who had just bought a home, with the assistance of HHH. HHH keeps in touch with our families, even after they are out of the program. The father, his wife and their 9 children were thrilled to finally own their own home. His children helped me carry the boxes into their home and, when everything was inside the house, the man walked me out to my car and, as we were saying goodbye, he handed me a $100 bill and told me to use it in the work of HHH. I was startled, not sure if I should accept it, but realizing it would be an insult if I didn't. Then he told me his story and he was so happy that now he could be the one helping others in the community. At that moment I understood what Helping Hand House does for our families in need and for our community. Helping Hand House brings hope to the families we help and gives community members and groups a way to lend a hand to our neighbors in need. HHH is a blessing to our area.
