Fall Fund Drive

As of this fall, By The Hand is helping 1,270 kids from four of Chicago’s most under-resourced neighborhoods. However, there are many other kids in critical need of intervention, kids who need to be taken by the hand and loved—mind, body and soul—before it’s too late.

Please consider providing the gift of love and literacy. Your generosity can be life transforming for kids like Eric.

He never learned how to decode words during elementary school. He was halfway through seventh grade and still reading at a third-grade level. Yet, thanks to the support of people like you, the individual attention he received at By The Hand and his hard work, Eric’s reading comprehension grew an astounding five grade levels. Now, he is reading this year as an eighth-grader. This is what human and divine love can do.
