About Us

Our Mission

The Lend A Hand Project is dedicated to enhancing the lives of indviduals and families in need on Long Island based upon the highest tenets of charitable giving. We extend a helping hand to provide not only material assistance but also ongoing relationships and friendship with dignity.

The Lend A Hand Project is a 501C3 not for profit charitable organization.

The nucleus of The Lend a Hand Project is our understanding of the depth and breadth of vulnerability that exists in Long Island. We offer a variety of programs to support communities of need with dignity, compassion and individualized attention.

Participants in our programs are fully vetted and our staff is available to help, guide, and support all members of our Lend a Hand Project family. We are currently enhancing the lives of more than 1200 Long Islanders.
