A Hand Up, not a Hand Out

How You Can Help

Send Donation

We’ve created a governing council, and have formalized our organization as a 501(c)(3) called Hands for Hope ATX, which will provide vocational and work opportunities for those who are left behind.

The camp is a Godsend, but it’s a little remote from grocery stores, and public transit is not very frequent. We would value assistance with transporting building materials, ride shares, so we can travel to work, see our families, and to go shopping. Additionally, we seek an accountant to ensure we formalize our finances properly.
