HANDS IS COMMITTED TO MAKING STRONGER AND MORE VIBRANT NEIGHBORHOODS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE COMMUNITIES IT SERVES THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT AND MANAGEMENT OF QUALITY AFFORDABLE HOUSING.
Since 1967, HANDS has focused on creating and preserving high quality, program enriched affordable housing for families and individuals in the area that might lack the financial resources to secure similar market rate housing. HANDS currenly has over 40 communities in its portfolio, with several more in the pipeline. Every night, over 1000 households have a safe, affordable place to call home thanks to the tireless work of the HANDS team.
While we do have rental revenue coming in each month, it is intended to be used to address things our properties need, such as capital repairs, operational issues and mortgage payments. Since the services provided to residents for quality of life enhancements are paid for using discretionary funds, it is a challenge to consistantly address the needs across all of our communities. We believe that true affordable housing requires these wrap around services , and your contribution will help HANDS address this challenge.
Your support will help fund the coordination of the following services for our residents, as well as programming, all with the goal of more successful residents:
* Employment Training * Housekeeping/home upkeep assistance * Promotion of site/neighborhood beautification * Medical Insurance Assistance/ Medication Monitoring * Case Management Services * Public Benefits * Healthcare/RN Assistance * Counseling Services * Financial Intervention/Budgeting/Financial Literacy Education * Nutrition/Food * Mental Health Services * Day Care/Youth Programs * Personal Growth/Life Skills
