Shelby County Reporter shared that Helena is one of the best places in Alabama to raise a family.
"The rankings provide “a comprehensive assessment of key favors that are meaningful for families at the suburb level,” according to the website. While calculating the rankings, Niche.com factored each area’s quality of public schools, cost of living, percentage of residents 14 and younger, crime and safety, family amenities, real estate offerings, number of residents 35-44, higher education rate and diversity".
"Hoover came in at No. 2 on the list, earning top grades for public schools and family amenities, followed by Helena, which earned its highest marks in family amenities and real estate offerings, at No. 5."
