Heart and Hand Center for Youth and Their Families

By creating a nurturing community, the Heart & Hand Center empowers all young people to realize their potential. We envision a world with no opportunity gap, where all children have access to the resources, skills, and information they need to build vibrant futures. The Heart & Hand Center provides nurturing, long-term support for 3rd to 12th grade youth in Northeast Denver through daily after-school and summer programming using a whole-child approach. In addition to the enriching programming we provide for young people, we also provide families with resources and referrals for critical needs such as housing, food, and emergency funding.
