Heart & 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. To meet this mission, the Heart & Hand Center provides after-school and summer programming to 100 3rd to 12th grade youth in Northeast Denver. We provide constant and stable support through a whole child approach with a focus on Academic Enrichment, Social Emotional Skills, Health and Wellness, Creative Expression, and Family Engagement and Support. What makes Heart & Hand unique is our model of long term, intensive support. Our students come day after day, year after year, because they are known and nurtured in the Heart & Hand family.

Heart & Hand programming provides underserved youth with a safe, productive, and supervised environment during statistically peak times for drug and alcohol use, gang participation, smoking, and sexual activity. We also work with families to provide critical care and support such as emergency shelter referrals, schools supplies, assistance in job placement, and emergency funding. Our whole-child approach provides youth with the tools they need to be successful in school and beyond.
