Until the last two or three years, I never would've considered even going to a volunteer event alone, let alone leading one. When I moved to Colorado, after going through a couple tough years, I made a promise to myself to start feeding good back into my community. It's been amazing for my emotional health, and I'm excited to start helping other people experience the same benefits of volunteer work. Also a big fan of puppies.
I am a proud United States Marine who is currently stationed in sunny southern California. My original hometown is a cold rainy place called Delaware and the Corps has taken me all around the world for the past 12 years. I have had the pleasure of living in countries like South Africa, Japan, Thailand and Argentina, while visiting and deploying to many more. Outside of the workplace I maintain a part-time student status and continue to pursue other passions which range from learning a new language to advancing in various martial art disciplines. As a cornerstone for character and a building block for compassion, I believe in the idea that service to others is truly a service to yourself. I am happy to be a member of Project Helping team.
Hi, I'm Bridget and I have lived in Denver for a little over two years. I have an amazing dachshund named Giuseppe and I think he could become internet famous. I enjoy hiking, reading, dancing and film photography. I look forward to volunteering alongside you at many PH events in the future!
I am an individual who believes you have to give to get. I am always inspired by those who are out making the world better everyday. Participating in a program like Project Helping allows me to be a little part of making the world a better place.
Lindsey is a 6th generation Floridian who moved to Colorado to start a business and explore the Rockies. She enjoys anything outdoors including hiking, skiing, and camping. She loves working with and for people to reach a common goal and is looking forward to being more involved in the Denver community.
Bridget is originally from the Seattle area. She began volunteering at various organizations while in middle school, which helped her to recognize the benefits and importance of volunteering. After graduating from Dordt College in Iowa two years ago, she has worked as a preschool teacher, camp counselor, nanny, and community service coordinator. She is currently working as an Americorps member in the volunteer department at the "I Have A Dream" Foundation of Boulder County and would like to eventually attend graduate school to obtain a Masters of Social Work.
I am a 22 yr old female always looking to stay busy! I am a firm believer that if you give first, you will receive all you need for yourself. Let’s be the answer to those prayers someone has prayed asking for help!
Hi! I'm Jillian and I am one of the rare Colorado natives :p. I am a very curious person and I LOVE learning all things new and mastering all things learned. When I am not at my full-time gig, you can find me outdoors, at concerts, baking, traveling, and hanging with friends or my cat :p. My motivation for living life is understanding people and making their lives better in whatever way I am able. We are all in this crazy life together and I believe it makes life a little sweeter and easier when we feel that connectedness.
My name is Julie and I am the Operations Manager for the Baby Haven, a non-profit, licensed and quality rated, child care center that serves the community as well as pregnant women and new mothers struggling with addiction. My career has been dedicated to serving families, women and children in many different capacities from teacher, mentor, trainer, grant writer and administrator. My sincerest belief is that children are the most valuable resource we have on this earth and that investment in our children and their families yields the very best outcomes for us all.
I hail from the metropolis of Philadelphia. In my free time I enjoy hikes, camping, yoga and anything outdoors which is what brought me to Colorado 2 years ago. I have been volunteering as a way to free my mind and soul from a very young age and am very excited and proud to be a part of Project Helping.
I am majoring in Business Administration at San Diego State University. My favorite meal of the day is breakfast. I love people's company, the freedom of choice, the practice of discipline, and sunshine. Dimples and smiles are my greatest weakness. Volunteering, without a doubt, always makes me feel better.
Hi! I am currently a high school junior in Colorado. I am extremely passionate about science, math, and volunteering! I have lived all across the country in Michigan, Wisconsin, Alabama, Alaska, and Illinois but so far Colorado is my favorite! I am so thankful for the opportunity to give back to my community!
I am a retired first grade teacher who started volunteering with Project Helping shortly after retiring. I have volunteered for many events and have enjoyed them all. Besides volunteering I still sub at my old school and love it as much as I did teaching. I am at the pool almost daily and love doing pilates. I also like to read and spend time with my family.
I'm a Texas-raised, New York-grown, and Colorado-transplant 🙂 You can catch me at my desk 9-5 where I work at a public relations firm in Denver. I'm a 530pm runner and a 9pm writer/advocate for eating disorder recovery. I love to hike, play piano, read, and I tend to chew on my pointer finger when I'm nervous (sigh, some habits die hard.) I also have a lovely lil rescue doggie named Juno.
I am excited to contribute to the Denver community and to connect with Project Helping volunteers! I recently moved back to Denver after a few years in Chicago, where I worked with youth and education access. The sunshine was a strong pull back here, as are the mountains. Some of my favorite places are the Tattered Cover Bookstore, the Mayan movie theater, and Little Man ice cream. I've enjoyed volunteering and am excited to continue all of its benefits.
I am a born and raised Texan that is a recent Colorado transplant! I initial move to this great state looking to start my career and build my network in the Denver metro community. beyond that, I love to spend the summer months out hiking and fishing amongst gorgeous Colorado streams and rivers. In the winter you can find me in the same mountains slaying what Colorado is known for, it's epic skiing. When I am not in the mountains I enjoy hanging in the city dining with friends and of course the new folk I meet out and about.
I am a food, fitness, and nature enthusiast from Singapore! I love immersing in different cultures both internationally and regionally that's why I chose to transfer to a university in Ann Arbor, MI after completing my associates degree in Santa Barbara, CA. I just relocated to gorgeous Colorado and spend time in the wilderness as much as I can!
I believe wholly in the four values that I center my life around being family, friends, impact and fun. I have a wonderful wife, a beautiful daughter and amazing golden retriever that motivate me, keep me busy and bring me pure joy every day. I love hearing people's stories and helping solve challenges for my friends, and I am always looking for new friends. No matter what kind of day I am having, I know that my day is typically much better than so many other people and devote my time to trying to make others' lives easier as I am able. If you remember a kid in middle or high school who was constantly being yelled at for making jokes or being the class clown, well then you pretty much understand me. I am the type of person who loves to have fun while working really hard. For me personally, the power of laughter is stress relieving and impactful, which allows for truly great things to happen and bonds to form.
I am originally from Dallas, TX, but moved to Denver in July of 2016 for nursing school. I love to do anything active and outdoors. I like to meet new people, pet animals, and celebrate being alive!
I lived in the beautiful Vail Valley until I was 13, bounced around the country a bit, and found my way back to Colorado in 2010. I love serving others, laughing with my husband and teaching my puppy new tricks. You may also find me dancing, running, hiking, skiing, playing board games or going on adventures with friends and family. Opportunities where I get to meet new people and be social are ideal for me. My goals are to continue to improve myself in all aspects while also making a positive impact on my community and the world, at large.
My name is Dusty! I'm a mom of two amazing boys, a foster mom to fur babies and an advocate for women helping woman. In my spare time I enjoy reading and hiking the beautiful Colorado Rockies.
I grew up on the east coast and found my way out to Denver in 2010. When I am not working you can find golfing, practicing yoga, and my latest hobby of rock climbing. My biggest passion is helping others and seeing everyone I meet to be successful...Without happiness nothing great happens!

I'm a Colorado native with a passion for being active outdoors. I spend a lot of time running and skiing, and really love engaging and building the communities around those two sports. If I'm not at work or outside, I'm enjoying my time with my lovely wife and our two rescue pups.
I am a Colorado native that just moved back to the U.S. after living and working in Ireland for three and a half years. I enjoy meeting new people and exploring new places (especially when delicious food is involved). I love live music, scuba diving, skiing, and I prefer traveling to places I have never been before.
I'm from Kentucky and I have lived in Denver since 1995 and have two grown children. I love anything people, networking and building relationships. I'm passionate about volunteering. As a life long volunteer, if I get sad or in a funk, I go serve someone and all is right with the world again.
My name is Sarah I'm a single mother of two, but a mom to many. I am very artistic and outgoing my favorite hobby is dancing. I'm often singing. I love the summertime. One of my favorite places is to be is next to the ocean and the beach. I am born and raised in Colorado, and I still hate the snow.
Hi, I'm Brandon. I'm a daddy to a wonderful 4yr old little girl named Eva Lou. My full-time job is being a leasing manager for a brand new apartment community. I love trying out new restaurants, thrift store shopping, and having fun no matter what!
I'm a Colorado native and love this state! I live with my husband, teenage daughter, 2 dogs, a cat and a turtle (almost a zoo!) in south Centennial/Littleton area. We try to spend as much time outdoors as possible experiencing this beautiful world. I work for a global electronics distribution and solution company where I venture from Accounting and IT to process design and training on a daily basis. I love what I do! Camping, hiking, picnics, playing volleyball and just getting together with family/friends are my favorite past times. I added in volunteering a couple of years ago and find as many opportunities to get involved with the community. You will usually see me with my husband, daughter, parents and friends at many events as I like to spread the wonderful feeling of volunteering with everyone! Can't wait to see you at an event soon!
