Outreach/Support

Fiesta Foundation

Gabriel Callejas, husband of Helpertunity's Founder Eileen Callejas, was the first business to step up and support Helpertunity's Mission, but it was not the first time the family restaurant owner had reached out to elderly, disabled, and homeless persons in his community.  

Global Service Day

Helpertunity participates as part of Walden University's Global Day of Service, held annually in early October.  Helpertunity offers an adaptive alternative to the other Worldwide One-Day event offerings, by providing a self-paced and online / distance-participation option.

Website Design Dream Team

In 2013, Helpertunity was the proud recipient of a "Coding for a Cause" Grant, provided by the Central Florida Drupal Web Development Community.

Talented Volunteer Web Designers used the open-source Drupal Coding Language to create this custom-designed website for Helpertunity, and provided free web-hosting for one year.

Craft & Gift Sales

Helpertunity was there when Karen wanted to start reconnecting with old friends online, and the journey led her right to a treasure trove of new ideas on creative social sites like Pinterest.  So, despite limited hearing and impaired peripheral-vision, which keeps Karen from driving, she enjoys gathering with friends online to exchange craft patterns and healthy new recipes:

Well Wishes

The classic art of letter writing is quickly being taken over by today's tech-based social-networks.  There are two groups of folks, however, who still appreciate the rare joy of getting a post card or letter in the good-old-fashioned mail; Nursing Home Elders & Summer Youth Campers.  

Science & Seniors

Keeping the mind sharp is important as we age... but staying young-at-heart requires trying new things with a bit of daring and playful experimentation.  Helpertunity combines each of these elements with their inter-generational elder & youth activities that are inspired by the fun of Science & Nature!
