Little Helping Hands
After struggling to find suitable volunteer opportunities for her own children, Marissa founded Little Helping Hands, a non-profit organization that creates and manages volunteer opportunities for younger children and their parents. Through Little Helping Hands families can sign-up for volunteer activities making it easier for parents/caregivers to teach children about the benefits of helping others. Marissa believes that fear of failure should not stop people from taking on leadership opportunities and that you can grow from every opportunity to lead.
