About Helpr

Helpr provides working parents with high-quality, affordable backup childcare. Through a transparent app, parents can review profiles of rigorously vetted childcare providers and request care in as little as three hours. Helpr works with leading companies across the country to subsidize back-up care hours for employees with kids, who oftentimes face childcare gaps when their kids are sick or their spouse has a work obligation. In collaboration with progressive companies, Helpr empowers hard-working parents to balance their professional growth with raising a healthy family.

We know that it really does take a village to raise children: a network of dedicated grandparents, in-laws, friends, friends-of-friends, and babysitters. Helpr believes that employers should be a part of that network. Together, we support the childcare needs of over 10,000 families nationwide.


Helpr is in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, New York, Seattle, and Chicago. Email us at hello@helpr-app.com if you’d like to have Helpr in your city.
