Review for Helping Hand Home for Children, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Helping Hand Home has been one of the most fulfilling volunteer experiences I have ever had. I originally began volunteering there for extra credit for one my university classes, but have stayed because the kids there and staff are so great. I do bedtime reading once a week and I also play outside with the kids every Friday. Although getting to know the kids can be difficult at first, once they start recognizing you and open up, they really are wonderful and make you feel appreciated and that your volunteering has been worth while. The staff here are also very friendly and helpful and always thank volunteers for their time--HHH is great and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to volunteer in a unique place with amazing people and a great sense of community!

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

my sense of involvement in the Austin community.

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

Hold more training sessions throughout the semester to recruit more volunteers
