Helping Hands, Open Hearts was established in 2013, but Ms. Bryant has had an open heart since the age of eight. Feeding the homeless was a family hobby that she participated in as a child with her parents. In 2005  she picked the hobby back up and started feeding at two locations: Dallas Public Library and Day Resource Center. After years of contemplating about turning her hobby into a non-profit, and with urging from family and friends, Helping Hands, Open Hearts was founded. In 2021 HHOH became a fully formed 501c3 organization.  Ms. Bryant officially has over 19 years of serving in the community service realm.
