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.
