More Ways to Use Lotsa Helping Hands

We first created Lotsa Helping Hands to support caregivers who are caring for loved ones during a medical crisis or when caring for an elderly family member. Today, Lotsa Helping Hands can be used in many new ways to organize helpers.

Lotsa Helping Hands is a great way to support military and veteran’s families, organize helpers for parents, coordinate volunteers for your school or religious group, and participate in general volunteer activities in your neighborhood.

Support New Parents and Parents of Children with Special Needs

Chances are that you or someone you know has cared for a child, and therefore you understand the joys, and sometimes the challenges, of this responsibility. Parents often experience exhaustion in caring for newborns, coping with the ever-growing list of do’s and don’ts as well as the sleep schedule that never quite seems to stay consistent. And asking for an extra set of hands is no easy feat. As these challenges and hesitations are true for all new parents, they are even more significant for mothers with multiples and parents caring for children with special needs. Yet what better way to express intimacy than asking for, or offering, loving assistance to family and friends? Create a Community Here

Coordinate Existing Efforts for Your Religious Group

For centuries, a hallmark of religious organizations has been their tireless effort to provide help to members of their local communities. Now, there is an easy way for these organizations to coordinate this assistance. Most groups publish the web site address in their service bulletin, encouraging member volunteers to sign up for posted needs, as well as to send well wishes to families, view the community calendar, or simply discover the resources and links to community-specific websites and other nonprofit organizations.
