We’re the Original Nanny & Domestic Help Agency in Los Angeles

In 1983, when Claudia Kahn founded The Help Company, there were no agencies in Los Angeles dedicated to helping families find caring, reliable, responsible nannies. It’s almost impossible to imagine; Los Angeles has always been a cosmopolitan city, full of high-powered entertainment moguls, titans of private industry, celebrities, professional athletes, tastemakers and other high profile individuals and families who need and value excellent service. Not that the nanny and domestic staffing business is reserved for only the elite; hardworking LA professionals also desire and deserve high-quality help they can trust with the responsibility of caring for their loved ones and home.

This is where The Help Company comes in. As the pioneering nanny and residence staffing agency in Los Angeles — and nationwide — matching just the right help with just the right household has been our mission from day one. Today from our headquarters in Brentwood, we work tirelessly to ensure that our clients and candidates alike are treated with the utmost care and respect every step of the way. We intimately understand and appreciate the unique needs of Southern California households, which are at once both casual and warm, refined and discerning. With 30+ years at the forefront of LA’s domestic staffing industry, we have a deep database of top-notch nannies, domestic service and estate management professionals and all of the premium vendors and service providers from the Westside through the Valley and beach communities, including Malibu and Santa Monica. Our services are nationwide, so if LA is a secondary or seasonal residence, we’re happy to handle all of your domestic staffing needs for household continuity, as well as for your comfort and convenience.
