Heart & Hand COVID Response

May 26, 2021

Learn how Heart & Hand is responding to the needs of our community.

Heart & Hand continues to respond to changing public health recommendations and plans from Denver Public Schools. We are currently providing in-person and virtual programming for elementary and middle school students to ensure they have a supportive space to learn and connect with trusted adults and peers. Heart & Hand is also focusing on the social emotional needs of our students and families during these challenging times. Career & College Readiness emerging leaders will continue to have one-on-one check-ins and access to drop-in hours. All community members can participate in Heart & Hand's ongoing food distribution weekly on Wednesdays from 3-5PM.


Heart & Hand’s elementary programs have resumed small group in-person afterschool programming with new safety precautions in place. Middle school programs are being offered in-person and virtually to accommodate all student schedules. Career & College Readiness students continue to connect with their Program Coaches and participate in virtual meetings, workshops and hangouts. Visit our Programs page to learn more about our traditional programming or to contact the appropriate program manager.


Youth, families and community members are invited to pick up food resources from the Heart & Hand Center at 2758 Welton Street each Wednesday from 3-5PM. In partnership with Denver Food Rescue, We Don't Waste and Food Bank of the Rockies, Heart & Hand will be offering fresh food and additional resources as available.  


In an effort to provide engaging activities to youth while they remain at home, Heart & Hand staff have developed robust virtual learning offerings. Young people can continue to find interactive mini-lessons on our YouTube page including getting active with Ms. Amber or doing art projects with Ms. Kenni!
