The future success of Little Hands is only possible with helping hands just like yours.
Since opening our doors in 1975 Little Hands has provided a parent and child co-op program that prioritizes learning through play for children, and support and growth for their parents. When we talk about community at Little Hands, we mean it! For over 45 years, and across multiple generations, we have brought thousands of young families together to learn, play, and discover. Our goal, now more than ever, is to continue to provide that community for parents and children.
Thank you to our Little Hands community members who have helped us push through the pandemic over the past few years. As the effects of COVID-19 linger, like many small nonprofits, our school faces its most challenging year yet, with nearly $90K needed in outside funding. With low enrollment, we face severely limited tuition income. Due to limited social interactions in the community over the past few years, families have not heard about us, so we have not benefited from the “word of mouth” that typically fills our classes. With grants and federal support no longer available and our families facing a challenging economy, our income is significantly reduced. Little Hands now depends more than ever on your support and direct cash donations and sponsorships from you, our community supporters.
We look to alumni, friends, families, and businesses of the Little Hands community to secure the future of our school. Please help spread the word, tell a friend, and help us by sharing this campaign on social media. Let people with little ones know that Little Hands is here for them! We want to continue nurturing, coaching, and learning as a co-op community filled with parents and children. Little Hands is incredibly thankful for your #donation, so that we can continue to encourage little hands to learn, grow, and thrive.
