Unlike many other charitable organizations, Hand in Hand specializes in providing direct, specific and personalized assistance to families.
Social workers in our schools identify families that are in dire need of fundamental essentials. Hand in Hand volunteers then partner with these social workers to reach out to the families to determine their exact needs (i.e. clothing sizes, food requests, housing supply needs, and more.)
Our volunteers shop for or collect donated goods tailored to each family and deliver them personally. We provide ongoing support, helping to build back up a family with the goal of keeping the children in school and the family feeling secure.
