Your Helpers Home Services began its journey in 2020. As we mark our 4th anniversary this year, it’s the perfect moment to reflect on where we started to where we are now. 

Your Helpers Home Services was started in March 2020, amidst the challenges of the initial COVID-19 lockdown of nearly four weeks. Despite the less-than-ideal timing, we launched from a modest home office on the Northern Gold Coast, with only Kris (our Founder) and a part-time administrator.

In just nine months, we experienced exponential growth, expanding from a small team to a thriving business. This growth allowed our business to move into a dedicated corporate office space. 

The move enabled our Cleaning and Gardening team to integrate into our office culture, forging connections with key team members and fostering a sense of belonging within our organisation. With an open-door policy, we welcome all to visit us at our Oxenford office.

Today, our team has over 75 dedicated cleaning and gardening professionals, serving over 500 participants weekly and fortnightly across Gold Coast, Beenleigh, Logan, and surrounding areas.

Reflecting on the business’ journey over the past four years, Kris says “I couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve accomplished. None of this would have been possible without the dedication of our incredible team who show up every day with smiles on their faces. I am truly passionate about the work we do and find immense joy in hearing the positive impact we’ve made on the lives of our participants, cleaners, and gardeners. It’s these stories that drive us forward and reaffirm our purpose every day.”
