Hand Up Fund

The Hand Up Fund allows you, our generous donor, to have a direct impact in bettering the life of another. Every donation, no matter the size, has a profound and lasting impact.

The Hand Up Fund meets the immediate needs of families living in emergency housing to enable them to become more independent. This includes costs associated with gaining employment, furthering education, participating in vocational programs, after school activities for children, transportation or rental application fees. We have covered costs for hard-working clients to sit for Certified Nursing Assistant or Medical Assistant exams or re-certifications, attend driving classes, obtain uniforms for a new job or enable children to participate in after school or sports activities.

Changing a little can change a lot.
