As we always say: “NoHo is only as great as its people.”
And this is true for the many people at Hand4Hope LA who help create the programs at that nurture and support our local North Hollywood youth and their families. Founded in 2000, this long-time, North Hollywood non-profit organization is an after-school and single-parent resource program that serves youth from single parent homes in North Hollywood and the surrounding East Valley communities. Hands4Hope LA provides support to at-risk youth ages 8 to 18 from low-income, predominantly minority households to improve their quality through free S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) based after-school programs, low-cost academic summer camp., and semi-annual single parent resource fairs.
While there are other organizations that target inner city youth, Hands4Hope LA founder Lydia Floyd found it necessary to build a base for the support of the multi-cultural children of North Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley.
So how do they do all their programs for our local youth and families? Through our support of their three main fundraising events.
Let’s help them continue their great work for 18 more years!
