In 2010, Heart & Hand founder Nikki Cady started art mentoring programs in Denver homeless shelters. Over the years Nikki's volunteer effort has grown to a multi-program nonprofit providing holistic after school and summer programming to Denver's undeserved youth.
Every day between 3pm and 6pm, 11.3 million children (1 of every 5 children) are unsupervised in our country. And for every child in an after school program, two are waiting to get in. We want to change this. Heart & Hand has grown a lot over the years, but we are ready to grow more to better support our community.
Heart & Hand is replicating its proven model with the goal of impacting 300 children daily by 2020.
We hope you will join us in our efforts to close the opportunity gap!
