Every parent has been there. It’s 3 p.m. and you’re getting in your last-minute errands before that night’s company holiday party. The babysitter’s coming over at 6 p.m., everything’s good to go.
Then you get the call from your usually dependable sitter, who has to cancel because of a death in the family. What to do?
If you live in Southern California, there’s a new on-demand app that’ll get you a screened babysitter to your doorstep in as little as three hours. (Those of us in Fresno will need to wait a little longer until the app arrives in the Central Valley.)
Helpr is an on-demand app that offers hundreds of screened and trusted babysitters who are available with as little as three hours notice. Unlike other babysitting services, Helpr’s babysitters have in-person interviews with Helpr staff and are background checked, double referenced checked, and CPR certified.
The app currently services Los Angeles, Orange County, and Santa Barbara, with plans to expand to additional areas in the near future.
Helpr Co-Founders, Kasey Edwards (CEO) and Becka Klauber Richter (President), both UCSB grads, are also founding members of FFLA (Female Founders Los Angeles), a group of women supporting women in tech leadership. They are also part of The Vinetta Collective, the world’s first talent agency dedicated to the rise of tech’s top female founders.
