Little Helping Hands partners with Refugee Services of Texas to shop for and set up apartments for refugees resettling in Austin. LHH is always organized in it's volunteer recruitment, provides nutritious snacks for the volunteers, and provides a volunteer opportunity that is educational for the volunteers (part of the activity is involves a short discussion of what a refugee is, the process of how they get to America, the cultural challenges they face, etc.) and of great service to the community. In a community with an abundance of not-for-profits, LHH is unique and fills a great gap in opportunities for service for youngsters.

The Great!

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

Seeing how beautiful the apartments turn out that Little Helping Hands helps to set up, and hearing the response from the caseworkers from the families that see their first homes in America that were lovingly set up by Little Helping Hands volunteers. Some of the families bring gently used and new items to help decorate the apartments and provide clothing and playthings for the children arriving.

Help them find more funding so they could have even more activities for the volunteers.

On its face, Little Helping Hands is about creating volunteer opportunities for younger children. But for our family this has meant quality time doing something together that's about someone else's needs, not about the latest trendy putt-putt course or killer movie. It has meant conversations about how it must feel to be homeless and without someone to turn to. It has created a young boy who doesn't think twice about picking up trash in a park and finding a proper home for it. It has meant the world to us to see our boy grow into a community member who feels like he can make a difference in this world one small act at a time.
