Dear Friends of Helping Hand
During these uncertain times,
the health and safety of our children and the families we serve at Helping Hand
Home remain our top priority. Our children continue to receive the best care in
our residential treatment center here in Hyde Park and in our foster and
adoptive families throughout the Central Texas community. For now, practicing social distancing is key to
keeping the children and our community safe, which is why we have closed
our campus to visitors.
I am proud to say that our
staff and foster parents remain our greatest asset. They are handling the
situation with grace, patience, and empathy. As they model behavior for
our children, we are grateful for their emotional and physical resilience. They
are also key in maintaining a sense of normalcy within our doors here as well
as in our foster and adoptive homes. Under their care, our children are
playing games and riding bikes. They are drawing, reading books, playing
on their computers, and listening and dancing to music – the very same things a
family would do.
As news continue to evolve
around COVID-19, we will keep you updated on any changes or needs that may
arise for our children and families.
In the meantime, we remain
committed to serving the most vulnerable children in our state. Thank you
for your support and prayers at this time.
