This is an amazing organization. I think every big city should have one. I am a first time stay it home mom of three small boys. I had previously worked full time and worked year round. This past summer I decided not to work and the boys were going to stay home. I was trying to find activities that would keep them busy. I also thought volunteering would be great. In trying to find things to do I found this great organization. They realize that little hands can do BIG things. My boys look forward to the activities and are able to communicate what there impact is doing. We really feel like we are making a great impact. The best part ( the ice cream award is great) is seeing the impact they have on the world. My one son received the community award at school. My other little guy helped pick up trash at a local park without being asked. This is an organization that helps are family show are children that everyone can help. I cannot say enough of the impact this organization has had on our family. We just moved to Austin and this is my favorite part of living this city. I think that says a lot.

Little Helping Hands teaches children about giving back in a fun environment. We assembled food for a pantry that gives to the working poor and the homeless. I believe it is so important for those who have to give back and it is never to young to understand this concept. We had a great time and plan to do it on a regular basis.

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

Hire more people to help the administrators take on more opportunities. Right now the volunteer demand exceeds supply but these two wonderful women can't be everywhere to oversee every project.

Little Helping Hands is a top notch organization. They offer a variety of volunteer opportunities for parents and children to do together. The website and sign up process are clear and concise. The volunteer activities are age appropriate, efficiently organized and show children that they can make a difference in our community despite their youth.

LHH is a fabulous way to help teach children from an early age that helping others is a rewarding experience. We just did our first LHH activity, and it was a fun afternoon for my daughter and me. We are looking forward to many more activities with LHH as we learn about ourselves and the world outside of our 4 walls.

Volunteerism has been a big part of my life, but after having a family it was difficult to find activities that we could participate in as a family. It's great to share the joy of helping someone else with your kids!

This organization does a FABULOUS job of keeping the activities appropriate for children. There is nothing I would change.

My eight year old daughter and I volunteered through Little Helping Hands in Austin, Texas for the first time this weekend. What a rewarding experience! My daughter met some great kids and really enjoyed packaging baby formula for children in need. The volunteer coordinators are so organized and made everyone feel comfortable and welcome in the group. We plan to do many more community service projects through Little Helping Hands in the future!

This is a most wonderful organization! It's one-stop-shopping for finding great volunteering opportunities that you can do with your children... which are often very difficult to find. Our entire family always leaves an activity feeling better for having helped out our community.

I have been a volunteer, along with my 6-year old son, with Little Helping Hands for one year. In a nutshell, Little Helping Hands coordinates and matches up families to volunteer activities in the Austin community that are age-appropriate for children.

What’s so great about this
organization is that is instills in children at a very young age the importance of helping others and giving back to our communities. Currently, the organization coordinates about 20 activities a month, but the demand from parents is so great that the schedule for the next month (once posted) usually fills up within 12-24 hours, leaving many parents and children without an opportunity to participate. Additional funding would help support so many more volunteer activities (and help our community even more)!

I feel very passionately about this organization and highly recommend it to any parent who cares about the community and our environment, and to the children of those parents, who will hopefully grow up to follow in their footsteps with the same values!

My son is always excited to participate in community activities organized through LHH. In the past year, he and I (along with hundreds of other families) have participated in volunteer activities at Goodwill Greenworks, Caritas of Austin, Micah 6 Food Pantry, Elderhaven, Zilker Botanical Gardens, and Refugee Services of Austin, among many others.

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

Add more volunteer activities for families each month, but that would only be possible with more funding!

Our family is very grateful to have found LHH. We have been doing volunteer events with them for a year now and my children have learned so many valuable lessons about giving back and about how lucky they are. We have also learned a lot about our city as the events are in a different place each time. I had really missed volunteering like I had before I had kids. It was hard to take the time from them to get out to volunteer. LHH has allowed us all to volunteer together which is even more fulfilling than the volunteering I was doing alone.

It is very important to me to teach my children the importance of giving back to the community & helping others. Little Helping Hands has helped me communicate this message to my son. He is only three and we can already participate in volunteer activities together because of LHH! LHH makes giving back fun for the kids. It is really filling a huge need in our community.
