Helpers, Inc.’s story began in early 2006 when Stacy Jones, a mother of a child with a developmental disability, became increasingly aware of families like hers who were struggling to find in-home caregivers (Helpers) to work with their children. As a corporate recruiter, she had the skills and expertise to successfully recruit, hire, and retain great caregivers for her son. She used this passion to launch Helpers, Inc.
Anne Cousin joined Stacy while Helpers, Inc. was in its infancy stages. Her passion for working with people, compassion for others, and strong communication skills made her a wonderful addition to Helpers, Inc.
Word spread quickly of the personal, professional and compassionate approach of the team at Helpers, Inc. Today, Helpers, Inc. serves over a thousand individuals who self-direct their Medicaid services throughout the state of Kansas.
We are proud to say that our business growth has come from referrals from our clients and business partners. When you call Helpers, Inc., you will notice an immediate difference.
“Helpers, Inc. has made a tremendous difference in the quality of life for my son with developmental disabilities.” – Judy
