HELPIS Help Me Help Someone, Inc is a registered as a 501(c)(3) Massachusetts nonprofit corporation. We connect people in need with people and organizations who want to help. There are so many people in need, but there are also so many people who would love to help, but who don’t know how to make their contributions meaningful. That's where we come in. 

HelpIs is a social movement in the state of Massachusetts, and the name HelpIs means hope in Greek. Our mission is to spread kindness by connecting people in need with people that wish to help, without asking for anything in return. HelpIs is an all-volunteer organization that does not receive any federal, state or private grant funding. HelpIs believes that we all experience times of struggle in life, and each of us has something of value to offer to others. One small and loving act of kindness is an opportunity for change and brings a sense of meaningfulness to both those who help and those who are helped.

HelpIs has connected thousands of people in need with thousands of people who wish to help since its founding in 2009. HelpIs volunteers led by Joyce Deliyiannis work collaboratively with social workers and community leaders to provide fast, targeted help to those in need. Common needs are clothing, food, diapers, formula, strollers, car seats, beds, household items and medical supplies. HelpIs has partnered with Burlington Youth and Family Services, Boston Health Care for the Homeless, Project Hope, Plummer Youth Promise (foster care and group home), Littleton Academy (residential treatment program), Stetson School (residential program) Bridge Over Troubled Waters (homeless shelter for teens), Lowell Transitional Living Center, the Tanner Closet at Woburn High School, the Disabled and Limbless Veterans, Inc., as well as many local Burlington area families.

On April 28, 2016 after years of advocacy by Joyce Deliyiannis and HelpIs, the Governor of Massachusetts honored this work by declaring May to be the Month of Kindness. Our vision is to spread our message that "those who are in need of help deserve to be helped" across our country through the passage of a national law recognizing the month of May as the Month of Kindness.
