Become A Volunteer


Helping Hands welcomes individuals to become involved.  We believe that volunteers help our agency to spread love to the children at our agency and show them that there are people who care about them.  Group Volunteer Application - Individual Volunteer Application


Our Mission

Become A Donor

Donations are gifts that our agency willingly accepts from individuals and groups in the community.  They help our agency to meet the needs of an average of 45 children living at our emergency home and to ensure that each child has the opportunity to participate in various activities and to fully enjoy his/her childhood.
