Helping Hand Home: Champions for Children
A team of Holtzman Partners’ members attended today’s Champions for Children Awards Luncheon benefiting Helping Hand Home. We were honored to be a part of the event and witness the recognition of some of Austin’s great caregivers and volunteers. It was truly moving to listen to country music singer and songwriter, Jimmy Wayne, share his story. In its 18th year, the annual Champions for Children luncheon honors individuals in the Austin community who have been selected for their outstanding work and service to children in need. This year’s honorees included a principal, a foster parent, artist volunteers and teacher.
Holtzman Partners is proud to support Helping Hand Home, now in its 124th year of serving children and families in the Austin area. Since 1893, Helping Hand Home has touched the lives of countless children and has evolved from a childcare facility into a residential treatment center for children who have experienced extreme abuse and neglect. At the Home children receive services that include therapeutic treatment and education. Helping Hand Home also provides foster care and adoption services and places approximately 90 children in caring homes each year.
