Open Hands Community Care is committed to making a meaningful difference in the lives of its participants and clients by providing essential support and fostering a sense of belonging within the community. With dedicated support workers, we ensures that individuals have the opportunity to engage actively with their surroundings and live fulfilling lives.

We empowers our participants and clients to venture out into the community, enriching their lives through meaningful experiences such as the participation within our Neighborhood Marketplace.

Many participants and clients of Open Hands Community Care find immense fulfillment in giving back to their communities. We actively supports and encourages volunteer opportunities. Whether it’s helping at the Marketplace, attending or participating in community events, or mentoring youth, individuals are given the chance to make a positive impact, enhancing their sense of purpose.

This month our participants got to experience different exciting activities that encouraged them to explore their interests and passions, develop new skills, and build relationships with others in their community.
