About Princeton University

Princeton strives to be one of the leading research universities and the most outstanding undergraduate college in the world. Recognized globally for academic excellence, Princeton University today is a vibrant community of scholarship and learning. As a research university, it seeks to achieve the highest levels of distinction in the discovery and transmission of knowledge and understanding, and in the education of graduate students. At the same time, Princeton is distinctive among research universities in its commitment to undergraduate teaching.

The University provides its students, faculty and staff with academic, extracurricular and other resources that help them achieve and perform at the highest levels. Through the scholarship and teaching of its faculty, and the many contributions to society of its alumni, Princeton seeks to fulfill its informal motto: “Princeton in the Nation’s Service and in the Service of All Nations."

In addition, Princeton provides a climate that encourages and values the participation of each faculty and staff member. Princeton University cares deeply about providing a campus environment and a range of programs that assist faculty and staff in achieving an appropriate balance among work, personal and family commitments. The University believes this can best be accomplished when employees take responsibility to sustain their own health and well being, and when Princeton makes various information, assistance and services available to support their efforts.

The University proudly offers many resources, benefits, services and programs to promote a healthier Princeton, and encourages individuals to learn more about and take advantage of those that meet their needs.

About Lotsa Helping Hands

Lotsa Helping Hands was created to support family caregivers and volunteers by empowering their circles of community who are eager to help those in need.

Our mission is to provide the communication resources facilitating a world where caregivers feel empowered to ask for help, and in so doing, improve their own health and quality-of-life; volunteers can become part of the solution when family, friends, neighbors or colleagues are in need of help, and community becomes a recognized way to find meaning in both giving and receiving.

Our Story

We created Lotsa Helping Hands after witnessing four years of awe-inspiring community support and response to a family member’s serious medical crisis. Seeing how earnestly friends wanted to help, and juggling the difficulty of organizing their assistance, we designed Lotsa Helping Hands with the understanding of how to bring together a variety of social circles and what a resulting community like this would need. Lotsa Helping Hands is easy to use and requires no training for either the Coordinator who creates the community or the members who participate.

Our Commitment to Philanthropy

Because Lotsa Helping Hands was inspired by the outpouring of support during our own caregiving experiences, we have a strong commitment to giving back, ourselves. We support the nonprofit sector and align with national organizations who offer our service to their members and constituents. We donate pro bono expertise and financial resources to the nonprofit organizations we serve.
