Our Partnership

Mobilizing Volunteers
Our volunteers bring joy, companionship and crafts to patients at Rivington House, a heathcare facility for HIV/AIDS patients. For those who can't join the class, volunteers make room visitations.
Making Grants To Fund Programs
Our grant supports primary programs to single mothers, children in foster care, senior citizens, and HIV/AIDS patients, populations that Gifted Hands has served for 20+ years, as well as a vocational training program around jewelry design.
Training And Consulting
Gifted Hands received a grant to work with a consultant on development for the board of directors, resulting in new board committees and electing a new board Chairman to guide the organization's growth.
