Helping Hand Home for Children of Austin
Since 1893, Helping Hand Home for Children has provided a place to heal for abused, neglected and abandoned children. The Home provides residential treatment services and therapeutic foster care for emotionally disturbed children and advocates for greater public support of early prevention, intervention, and treatment. Helping Hand Home is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization located in Austin, Texas licensed by the State of Texas and governed by the membership of the Helping Hand Society.
The Home is the oldest continuously operating residential childcare agency in Travis County, a priceless resource kept strong and viable through community support.
Our mission is to maintain a therapeutic home for children and to restore each child to a healthy family setting.
Our goal is for the children to take responsibility for their own actions, leave with a sense of worth, improve their academic skills and gain an increased sense of trust.
