DVTD + By The Hand
We are so excited to partner with By The Hand throughout the entire month of October!
By The Hand is a Christ-centered after-school program that takes kids by the hand and walks with them from kindergarten through college, loving and nourishing them—mind, body, and soul—and helps them have an abundant life. By The Hand programs prioritize academic excellence, technology-enabled instruction, enrichment and literacy, tutoring and mentorship, and spiritual development to help students become agents of change.
From humble roots …
Founded in 2001, By The Hand served 16 children from Cabrini-Green and witnessed a transformation within the lives of their kids as well as their organization.
Now, 20 years later, they serve more than 1,600 kids from Cabrini-Green, Altgeld-Murray, Austin, and Englewood, and North Austin.
With locations strategically located throughout Chicago’s most dangerous and under-resourced neighborhoods, By The Hand is serving kids where the need is greatest.
Dangerous, under-resourced neighborhoods where By The Hand serves represent only six percent of Chicago’s population but account for 23 percent of the city’s homicides.
See how DVTD is making giving back a top priority!
In summary, here are the two ways that DVTD gives back:
DVTD + By The Hand
Together we can play a life-changing role for the kids in Chicago’s under-resourced neighborhoods. When you help By The Hand’s kids become the solution, you help them rise above violence and poverty. You help them have new and abundant life.
Funds can go towards the purchase of everyday clothing, school uniforms, and winter gear for all ages of By The Hand students. The need is great in this area as family budgets are often limited.
