Helping Hands Family Outreach, Inc.

Supporting the Children of Fallen Officers, Military Service Persons, Veterans, First Responders, Foster Children, and At-Risk Youth. 

Helping Hands Family Outreach, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to support the children of fallen officers, military service persons, veterans, first responders, and at-risk youth through education, mentoring, job skills training, community outreach, and cyberbullying programs. 
Our goal is to use group mentoring and life skills education training to help children who have experienced the loss of a parent adapt and feel supported, as they grow through their grief and loss to become well-equipped, well-educated leaders now prepared with the skills necessary to achieve high academic and career success. 
Our programs help our youth shape their own values, while providing them with all the tools, resources and support they need in order to evolve into confident leaders tomorrow. We welcome you to learn more about how we make a difference in children’s lives!
