Allie’s Helping Hands fills a need. There are organizations that do wonderful work with gifts and donations to families with children who are ill, but Allie’s Helping Hands takes the support a step further. We give our time, our attention, and the gift of our presence.
Our teams of volunteers offer companionship, fun outings, homework help or practical assistance to siblings. When Allie’s Helping Hands volunteers spend time with siblings, the parents have an opportunity to take time for themselves, too.
We work alongside the medical community to provide these days of play for siblings visiting their sister or brother in the hospital. These days balance fun with the comfort of talking with other siblings who are walking in similar shoes.
Allie’s Helping Hands’ collaborative approach with the medical community plays another very important role – siblings have a voice in the healthcare system.
