The Backyard Humanitarian team mission is to promote kindness, encourage local volunteering, stand by those in need and support/empower those wanting to make a difference in their communities right here, right now.
Backyard Humanitarian was founded by Angela Margaret Malizia in 2010 with the support & encouragement from family, friends & co-founding BH management team. The first projects were started w/volunteers & local businesses who became Backyard Humanitarians & participated to make this movement of kindness possible! The BH Team has now grown to over 1,000 volunteers who have completed more than 250 community volunteering projects in multiple communities.
