Helping Hand Home for Children
Based in Austin, Texas, Helping Hand Home for Children has been a safe haven for children healing from physical and emotional abuse, neglect or abandonment for more than 120 years. Helping Hand's mission is to provide a nurturing and therapeutic home for children and to restore each child to a healthy family setting. Children, whose young lives were once filled with fear, pain, and chaos, are learning to trust adults to take care of them and reclaim their childhood. Helping Hand's programs include residential treatment, education through its on-campus charter school and foster and adoption services, benefitting approximately 225 children and family members each year.
