I have been a leader in the Boy Scouts of America for 8 years and have had our scouts donate to Helping Hand House for 7 of those years. The scouts really enjoy helping out this great organization, especially when they hear how families have greatly imroved their lives. The Helping Hand House is doing things our government cannot do, and that is to help get families back on their feet. Through the Helping Hand House we are able to touch so many kids lives and make a difference.

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

Hearing about the families we helped move out and make it on their own

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

Set up organized service projects with groups like Boy Scouts of America. A lot can be accomplished through organizations like this.
