Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Building for Change, Belize

Building homes for the economically disadvantaged in Belize. Hand in Hand Ministries has built over 400 homes in Belize City since 2002. Many Belizean families live in substandard housing. Hand in Hand volunteers make a difference by hammering out 16’×20′ wooden homes that keep families dry during Belize’s six-month-long rainy season. Volunteers work side-by-side with our Building for Change partners, forming close personal connections as they complete construction together.

Our program, developed in 2005, is to enhance the educational opportunities for children living in Leon & Managua, Nicaragua, in hopes of breaking the cycle of poverty. Providing scholarships to nearly 100 children ages six to sixteen, who are provided with everything they need to thrive in a private school setting in Leon & Managua, Nicaragua. Books, uniforms, tuition assistance, tutoring, English classes and family counseling are essential ingredients for academic success. We celebrate the accomplishments of 34 program graduates who have continued their studies at local universities.

The Louisville Immersion program is devoted to building relationships in our hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. The Community Impact projects has given us the opportunity to collaborate and partner with other non-profits and organizations in west Louisville who have their own project lists, in addition to alley clean-ups and beautification projects. We have been thankful to build relationships with these organizations and together we work to find ways we can support one another as we all work to build a better community. We utilize Hand in Hand volunteers & staff to complete the work.

Our Homeowner Assistance Program Home repairs are one way that Hand in Hand intersects with our community and works to raise the quality of life, the health of a home, and even the safety of the residents living in their homes. In our Homeowner Assistance Program we utilize our volunteers to complete the work.

In 2009, with the help of a grant from the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and the Catholic Health Initiative we were able to take our services out into the community with our Mobile Outreach Program. We now accompany about 75 children ages 1-17 in their medical journey and have created support groups providing a valuable resource for teens and young adults as they face challenges living with HIV/AIDS. We monitor the children's health, administer antiretroviral medications, and often treat pregnant mothers of the children in our program.

The Global Fund has recognized our program as the “gold standard” for treatment of children with HIV/AIDS.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To build strong communities around the world by starting at home. We strengthen our own community by opening hearts and minds to the needs of others through our unique immersion trip program. To provide resources for the economically vulnerable through our on-going programs that focus on safe housing, education, and health care in Eastern Kentucky, Belize and Nicaragua. By providing these services, children and families have the resources and tools to acquire jobs and have a better standard of living. We have recently expanded programming into the Louisville area, creating an Urban Immersion program.

Our programs in Eastern Kentucky, Belize and Nicaragua are now self-sustaining and we are continuing to deepen the impact in meeting the expressed needs of the people through our cultural immersion trips and returning volunteers. We have created a 5-year plan and have recently expanded our program model into the Louisville, Kentucky market, creating an Urban Immersion Program with home repairs, home ownership, education and resource assistance.

We have a strong donor base and some grants that support our existing programs. Many of our donors have expressed their interest in a local program. We are putting a strategy in place to reach out to corporations, individual funders, and grants for additional capital to expand our programs in Louisville, Kentucky. We will be seeking financial assistance to hire staff, equipment, and a place to house out of town volunteers.

We have increased our cultural immersion trips from 66 in 2015 to 80+ in 2018. We have implemented an interactive website.

We haven't overcome poverty. Currently, we have volunteers from 44 states and our goal is to reach individuals, middle and high schools, universities/colleges, church groups and other civic groups to experience our immersion trips and programs from all 50 states.
