A Hand Up Call to Action – help US settle into a new home!
No, that’s not a misprint.  We have acquired new digs and we’re moving into them Thanksgiving Weekend.  Thanks to the generous support of our donors and volunteers, we’ve outgrown our current space and we’re relocating to a new warehouse with more amenities that’s right around the corner.   Our new warehouse will hold more furniture and household goods which means we can service more clients.  It is a very exciting milestone for A Hand Up and we hope you can be a part of this.  We need volunteers – and lots of them – to move from our New Park Avenue location to our new place.  Moving days are Friday (November 28th), Saturday (November 29th) and Sunday (November 30th).  Want to work off that extra piece of pie?  Need a break from shopping ‘til your dropping over those Black Friday deals?   Then come on over and help us move!  Please contact our Sam Paul, Director of Operations to get on the schedule:  860-424-2980 or warehouse.coordinator@ahandupinc.org.  We will be extremely grateful for your support.

The transition from the streets to a new home can be tough.

Many people manage to escape homelessness, but come home to an empty house every night.

How would you live without even a cooking pot, a chair or a bed?

Sometimes everyone needs a hand up.


A Hand Up, Inc distributes donated goods to help people transition from homelessness to independent living.
