Funding Needs

H.A.N.D. is in need of funds to support our independent care program which assist those who are "in the gap", not qualifying for state funded home care programs, but unable to afford to pay privately for care.  With funds raised, we are able to provide sliding scale care which is often the difference between an individual remaining home independently or having to enter a nursing home. We are additionally in need of funds to support social work services, transportation and client assistance.
