A Donation to HANDS Transforms Lives

When you donate a tax-deductible gift to the non-profit organization HANDS, you help us to achieve our mission of building stronger and more vibrant neighborhoods in partnership with the communities we serve through the development and management of quality affordable housing. Your support will help families in need and those with special needs, support seniors and give new hope to our homeless and at-risk veterans.

Your charitable donation to HANDS will help us continue to:

  • Build safe, quality and affordable housing for low-income families, seniors and people with disabilities,
  • Deliver supportive services that provide residents with skills, resources and opportunities
  • Revitalize struggling neighborhoods through quality affordable housing
  • Award mini grants to our residents through our Resident Initiative Fund for group classes, community gardens, community craft rooms, etc.
