About Us

Happy Helpers is a care agency with operations in Katy, Sugar land and greater Houston Area.  The idea to start a nanny agency was based out the desire to assist families in the greater Houston area to find responsible and well vetted helpers; and also to help the care professionals to find a safe and secure work environment. 

Happy Helpers believes in creating  a positive care environment, hence the reason for using responsible college students as the child care sitters and nannies. The New Mom/Infant care program are provided through Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Vocational Nurses ( LVNs) and Newborn Care Provider (Certified Nurse Assistants / Home Health Aides).

Happy Helpers personalizes our services based on your needs and we maintain a large registry of care professional to meet the demands of our client families.  

Our goal is to make sure that you have a Helper, when you need a Helper.
