BY THE HAND CLUB FOR KIDS

Mission Statement

We are a Christ-centered, after-school program that takes kids by the hand and walks with them through college, helping them have abundant life—mind, body and soul. From the time they enroll in our program until they're walking independently as well-adjusted, responsible adults, our mission is to literally and figuratively take our kids by the hand and walk alongside them. We tutor them to academic excellence. We mentor them to make wise, life-defining decisions. And we care for them as our own, meeting their basic nutritional and medical needs.


About Us

At By The Hand Club For Kids, our vision is to help kids in critical need of intervention have new and abundant life.

We are committed to serving children from the most under-resourced, dangerous neighborhoods. We work closely with school principals to identify those who are most likely to drop out—those who are failing and in critical need of intervention. Typically, they are not meeting reading standards and they often have significant hardships that require special attention to overcome. It is our vision to help each one of these children experience abundant and everlasting life.

By The Hand began in 2001 with 16 children from Cabrini-Green. Since then, we have witnessed transformation within the lives of our kids—and as an organization. This year we are serving more than 1,000 kids from Cabrini-Green, Altgeld-Murray, Austin and Englewood. God willing, we will add other locations to serve nearly 2,000 kids by the year 2018, helping the lowest-performing kids from each neighborhood succeed in school—and life.
