What We Do

Helping People Succeed is a comprehensive organization that has recognized that many populations within our society need strength based services that lead to self sufficiency, personal responsibility, and the ability to lead an everyday life. Helping People Succeed's goal is to help each person to reach their potential so they may have a successful future, enjoying their life fully and participating as productive taxpaying citizens. Helping People Succeed also helps improve the community’s economic viability and diversity through programs that assist children to become ready for school and adults find and maintain employment.


Our Programs

Our Inspiration

A young girl was walking along a beach upon which thousands of starfish had been washed up during a terrible storm. When she came to each starfish, she would pick it up, and throw it back into the ocean. People watched her with amusement.

She had been doing this for some time when a man approached her and said, “Little girl, why are you doing this? Look at this beach! You can’t save all these starfish. You can’t begin to make a difference!”

The girl seemed crushed, suddenly deflated. But after a few moments, she bent down, picked up another starfish, and hurled it as far as she could into the ocean. Then she looked up at the man and replied, “Well, I made a difference to that one!”

The old man looked at the girl inquisitively and thought about what she had done and said. Inspired, he joined the little girl in throwing starfish back into the sea. Soon others joined, and all the starfish were saved.
