About Hands Giving Hope

Story About Us

Who We Are

Hands Giving Hope (HGH) is  a 501(c)(3) faith-based non-profit organization that works with local, regional, and international partners to help establish sustainable projects and programs for children and their families living in poverty.  We desire to further the Kingdom of God by responding to the poor, disadvantaged, hopeless, and disenfranchised in the countries that we serve.  To this end, our focus is to identify the root causes of poverty, identify tangible opportunities to educate, empower and enlighten, and to assist with projects and programs that address these needs in a long-term, self-sustaining manner. We believe that  fulfilling physical needs is necessary to reaching the spiritual need of those entrapped in poverty and social injustice.

Since 1998, we have traveled to poverty-stricken areas around the world assessing needs and tackling the real problems leading to poverty. Our activities have encompassed orphan care, education, short-term food provision, agriculture/animal husbandry, medical/dental services, housing/water/sanitary provision, and Christian spiritual development.

Food & Water

We provide feeding centers where children go days without eating and extreme malnutrition exists. As well as clean drinking water where water is either scarce or polluted.

Medical & Dental

Medical and dental care for children and their families in communities where many have never seen a doctor or a dentist.

Orphan Support

Supporting orphans and the places they live by providing daily meals, education experiences and complete medical care and dental care.

Give opportunities to other individuals, non-profits, and for-profit organizations to be directly involved in our programs and projects.

Financial Responsibility

We take the responsibility of managing the resources that are entrusted to Hands Giving Hope very seriously.

We prayerfully and carefully look over and review all of our projects and costs, use donations and grants for their intended purposes, and look for ways to make the most with what God gives us financially to change the lives of every child, family and community we come in contact with.

As a faith-based organization, we acknowledge that we are accountable not only to our donors and partners, but to God. “For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.” – 2 Corinthians 8:21

Our Model

To develop strong partnerships with local partners and work cooperatively and intentionally with these partners to identify problems and culturally-relevant solutions.  Within the United States, WE HAVE WORKED WITH: THE BURN CENTER, TEEN CHALLENGE, CITY OF PHOENIX HOUSING, FELLOWSHIP OF CHRITIAN ATHLETES.  Currently, we have STRONG partner RELATIONSHIPS on the Navajo Nation, Short Creek Dream Center (Colorado City, AZ), Phoenix Rescue Mission, and POTER Inc.

Internationally, we work very closely with partners in China, India, Mexico, Honduras, Kenya, and Dominican Republic.

There are many organizations that are making a difference in the lives of the impoverished throughout the world – we commend their work and strive to support their work by implementing different methods that are not competitive, but instead are complementary, to theirs.
