Helping Hand House is a fantastic organization - between the incredible love and care for the families (evident in their personal stories of encouragement and respect at the annual breakfast and family banquet), and the integrity of the staff I've been in contact with, I couldn't be more pleased to be a part of the work with them. I had no idea how many families are homeless, but to see the way these folks work alongside families to 'ensure they are never homeless again'...it's more than a leg up, it's transformation. Four stars, Helping Hand House!
