In 2018 Hands began conducting follow up contacts with clients one-to-three months after their initial services. Information was obtained confirming that the women’s indicators of self-sufficiency were being achieved:

  • 83% of Hands’ clients reported at their program enrollment that they needed a reliable car to maintain their employment. 92% of those individuals strongly agreed at the 1-month post service contact that this indicator was happening.
  • 46% indicated they needed their car in order to remain independent and safe from a past abusive relationship. 89% of these women indicated their car was providing this benefit.
  • Almost all of the women stated that having a reliable car enabled them to travel easily to the grocery store, medical/dental appointments, and to children’s activities.
  • Hands was excited to hear women’s delightful discovery that having a dependable vehicle gave them more time to engage in meaningful activities with family and friends, while eliminating hours of wasted time making connections on public transportation.

Thank you so much for providing a vehicle for my family and I. You all have been a big blessing in this search of a reliable car. May God bless each and every one of you for the work that you do!

As an essential business, Hands is open!

Operating with the highest level of care, our team is continuing to serve women who come for help and hope.

You can have an immediate impact through financial gifts, or offering a vehicle as a gift in our vehicle donation program.

Single women in need are still needing to get to the store, get to doctor’s appointments and provide for their families. 60% of the women in Hands’ two year repair, maintenance and education program have reported having lost a job, had reduced hours/pay or their business has closed all together. 40% suggest that their vehicle currently needs maintenance or repair. Transportation is a necessity – Please be a champion for them today!
