My daughter has recently been in this program for her behavior, SHE HAS NOW IMPROVED AND SHE ALSO, helps around the house more, and is being more respectful to us. Her counselor is also helping her find a job, and apply for college. Thank you

My daughter has been in this program for more than one year. She loves every aspect of it. The counselors are very caring and go out of their way to do what is right for my child.

When my kids first came to Helping Hands I was a little concerned about having people come into my home, however, the workers that my kids had were respectful and appear to care about the work that they did. Although they were there to help my kids they were vary supportive in helping me find services for myself. I really wish that they had a summer camp so that kids could have something to do during the day in the summer.

Recently was referred to this program, and since then she has improved in school, and is no longer getting badd grades,or being disrespectful, her PRP worker has really been involved in helping us. And comes to pick her up on a weekly basis. This program has helped me in many ways, cause I lost all hope in my kid getting on the right track, and she has done a huge turnaround

Someone that works there has a criminal record and also has stloen social security numbers. I am seeking legal advice! Although this person got pass a criminal chk and has my info recorded as personal use, i have no other complaints. It still comes back to the point my privacy was violated and legal actions will be taken.

This business is full of pedophiles and convicted felons. They steal identities to work with kids. The contact Listed mhhelpinghands@gmail.com is herself a crooked thief. I wish parents would be informed consumers

My children were in this program, and when they came back home, the didnt have to attend anymore. My advocate found out the owner was still using my child to bill for. We have sent a complaint to board of social work on Melissa handler. She steals people identy for money. She's going be shut down soon. Because they know she doesn't have her stuff up to par . She is white TRAILOR trash functional junkie. I hated when my child was in THT place. Only one I liked was my son mentor. Not her rude nasty high self

Owner Melissa Handler mhhelpinghands@gmail.com asked me to do a side job for her, and when the job was done, she refused to pay me my whole fee. I should have listened when I read reviews, and it was said she was a crook. She is also a creep. Hope all parents think before they put they children in her hands. Most of her staff are nice, and would be better of with out that lady.

I never seen such a place that was so Dysfunctional. The owner is cheap and Disrespectful. I worked there for over three months And seen how many children was being mistreated. Counselors Lying and saying they are singing the kids When they are not. people in positions that don't know what they doing. It's sad when people use kids just to make it And make it seem like they care about the kids. Stop billing for kids that are not being seen

This is the worst program I have ever seen when it comes to helping children improve in life. The owner is a rook, and all she does is smoke, drink and stay upstairs. some workers are very unprofessional and i really dont know how she got her license to operate.The office space in not conducive for a child to learn any thing, no instructional toys or tools to benefit the children besides watching cartoon. There is absolutely inadequate training materials for new employees, and orientation is ridiculous. You cannot differentiate between a staff and someone from the streets. The office location itself is in a very scary, unsafe location, not safe for kids. This is because the office is part of where Melissa lives. She lives upstairs and then has three miserable space downstairs for clients and employees. Her appearance is always disgusting, and she likes to wear sweatpants and a shirt. very ghetto because she is in a ghetto community. This agency needs a thorough evaluation and needs to

MELISSA HANDLER IS A CROOK. IF YOUR CHILDREN WERE IN HER PROGRAM AND HAVE NOT BEEN SEEN FOR A WHILE,CHECK WITH THE INSURANCE COMPANY TO SEE IF THEY ARE STILL BEING BILLED FOR.
