Helping Hand Home for Children
Helping Hand Home for Children provides nurturing and therapeutic homes for children who have suffered abuse and neglect. The nonprofit’s goal is to heal these children and ultimately return them to healthy and permanent families. The Impact Austin grant will be used to expand the capacity of the Families First Program which recruits, trains and supports families that will foster and adopt children with complex trauma in the foster care system. The grant will allow Helping Hand Home for Children to hire staff to recruit an additional 25 families and place an additional 30 children in highly trained homes.
