Promote This Nonprofit
I support this nonprofit as a donor because it provides families the opportunity to introduce their children to volunteerism at a young age. I wish i had had access to an organization like this when my children were toddlers and young people. LHH is run in a smart efficient way using the internet and Facebook to organize and promote its activities and to inform its supporters of the results of contributions by young people and their families. This nonprofit deserves to be listed on the Top-Rated Nonprofits List.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
It is surprisingly difficult to find volunteer opportunities for families with young children - this non-profit provides an invaluable service by pairing families with service projects in which children are active participants. Not only does this benefit the immediate recipients of the services, it helps strengthen families and creates a new generation of community-minded individuals who care about those around them. As a donor and a volunteer, I feel fortunate to have found Little Helping Hands because it has provided my family a way to bond with eachother and the Austin community.
