We build futures and communities through affordable housing and economic development programs.
We create more possibilities for youth by giving them the educational and professional opportunities needed to thrive.
We pave a better way forward for youth and their families by creating a foundation built on love and empathy.
We remove unconscious barriers for youth facing mental health challenges, ensuring they always have a place to turn to.
At Handy, we believe that when we create lasting positive change for our youth, we change our future. Since 1985, we’ve transformed the lives of over 50,000 at-promise youth and their families by empowering them to take control of their own narratives and create a better future for themselves.
From the first moment a youth experiences Handy, they are met with unconditional love and empathy from a team of people who genuinely cares for their well-being. Through a level of understanding and shared experience, we are able to fulfill each youth’s most basic needs.
When we empower our youth to take control of their own narratives, they aren’t just changing one life, they are creating meaningful change that will last far beyond their lifetimes. An outcome that ripples into a new generation of outcomes, becoming the rule rather than the exception.
