Review for Helping Hand Home for Children, Austin, TX, USA
I have been lucky enough to volunteer at HHH for 6 months and plan to continue it for many more. I love that I am able to be the calming voice at the end of a sometimes hectic day as I read bedtime stories to individual children. The staff cares intensely about the well-being of these kids, and I'm glad to be a part of their support network. Not only do I (hopefully!) help the kids, it helps me, too. I work as a nanny, and it often strikes me as surreal that despite the often horrific backgrounds these kids come from, they, just like the kids I take care of, really look forward to and enjoy something as simple as stories at bedtime. The children are always excited to see me, and I love getting the chance to end my day in such a positive way. I look forward to many more pleas of "one more story" and "read it again!"
