Open Doors With Your Heart

Volunteers play an integral role in the healing process at Helping Hand Home. The children in our care have experienced violations of trust from adults & peers around them. This relational trauma requires relational healing. While at HHH children learn to trust again by building safe, healthy, and authentic connections to adult caregivers & peers. Volunteer engagement extends this newfound trust to the world beyond Helping Hand, showing children that there are safe & caring individuals in our community and beyond.

You can provide hope and love in a child’s life by becoming an HHH Volunteer!
