Project Helping

I often sign up for Project Helping events, but then my social anxiety kicks in and I try to talk myself out of going. But then I remind myself how amazing I am going to feel when we are done. Even on my lowest day, I always feel more optimistic and confident after a Project Helping event.

Project Helping

Keeping busy and helping others, whether its volunteering or just helping a friend, has been an important strategy in dealing with the depression/anxiety in my life. Mental illness is in my family, my Mom had manic depression -- so I have learned to deal through taking good care of myself and helping others. This is for my happiness and the happiness of others..... so I could be the best wife, mother, sister, friend and person possible.

My volunteer experience was great. First, it was easy to sign up and once I was there I felt very comfortable to jump right in and help out. I met some really great people and left the experience feeing very gratified.


What a wonderful way to spend my Saturday morning. I met wonderful people and feel great! The impact a few hours of my time will have on those in need was clearly measured and explained by the Project Helping team. I can't wait for the next event!

Project Helping

I was just recovering from a family trauma for 1.5 years, but I felt very down sometime. I decided to engage myself in some volunteer activity. Volunteering gave me good feeling, sense of purpose, rid away from bad thoughts, and also a hope. Now I spend almost every weekend on volunteering one or the other places. My volunteering journey started with Project Helping and I am very grateful for them.


It feels so good to be able to help others in my free time. It gives me awareness about my life and helps my mental health. I plan on continuing it on a monthly basis.


I had an amazing experience at urban peak. Everyone I worked with was so friendly and upbeat. Knowing that I helped feeding the homeless was so rewarding, there's not another feeling like it.


I did not stumble across Project Helping on accident; in fact, I knew exactly the kind of organization it could be, and is, at the onset of the idea, having known Justin Kruger for a very long time. I, myself, struggle with depression and anxiety, and when the opportunity arose to join this great cause as a board member, and also be a part of its volunteer network, I jumped, without doubt or fear. The mission of creating joy through purpose feels genuine, and even in my short time with the organization, I simply feel better. The abyss of depression is lonely, and often spiraling, yet with each event is a potential opportunity to smile, to laugh, to have a sense of camaraderie with others that would otherwise not exist for me. Even as it seems so effortless for others likely not struggling with depression and anxiety. With Project Helping, I finally belong somewhere.


Volunteering with Project Helping was so rewarding and such a wonderful experience! After my time volunteering with Project Helping I had this new sense of appreciation and gratitude. Volunteering your time gives you new perspective and helps you to see life through a new set of lenses. There really is no greater gift to give to someone than your time and is the gift that keeps on giving. It was definitely a priceless and special experience. I look forward to volunteering more through Project Helping and continuing to help others and continuing on my pathway of personal healing and growth.


I love being involved with Project Helping. Volunteering and giving back to my community taps into a well of joy within me that I did not know existed. I am so thankful to the project for bringing me out of my darkness and into a group of amazing people. It feels amazing to give back to those in need, and I am lucky to reap the added benefit of how it makes me feel in return.
