Helpertunity


 

About

Helpertunity empowers Recreation, Education & Volunteer Activities for Elderly & Disabled & Itinerant Persons; using Creative Arts, Technology & Game-Play. Helpertunity conducts research and outreach efforts in our local communities, to counteract age-ism and support inclusiveness. The charity has an inspiring history of providing recreational resources, training workshops, and program-support to Activities-Professionals and Skilled-Volunteers, since long before its official founding as a 990N sized 501(c)(3) publicly-supported non-profit charity, in Central Florida back in 2010.

Helpertunity offers local independent volunteers in the Central Florida Area a variety of hands-on and in-home contribution-crafting activities.  Helpertunity also oversees volunteers doing community outreach on behalf of the organization at public events and offers resources to those visiting local Nursing Homes to provide "adaptive volunteerism" programs to care facility residents.  Helpertunity is proud to offer a variety of creative "virtual" and "distance volunteerism" projects, as well as hands-on-location corporate-level volun-tainment activities for sponsoring offices, conference events, and civic groups occupying or visiting the Central Florida Area.

The Central Florida main offices and program services of Helpertunity are most in need of quality adult-student grade arts and crafts supplies.  Current cash contributions are also being accepted into the organization's Capital Campaign; to get the charity's van equipped with a wheelchair-accessible in-floor ramp to safely transport resources and dedicated volunteers to outreach programs.
