Who We Are

Hands joined in service can renew humanity.

Hands That Serve began in 2003 as a feeding program which provides lunches (cheeseburgers)  to the homeless in downtown St. Louis. It has evolved into a service organization that provides funding for people who are working hard to get their lives back on track. This includes scholarship money to local community colleges, security deposits to ensure housing and general financial assistance to those in need.

Hands That Serve is privately funded by individual and corporate sponsors and is run by volunteers.

Nearly 99% of donations received go directly to those in need. All donations are tax exempt.

Joining Hands with Kingdom House

KINGDOM HOUSE_1012878002_nIn our service to the poor, Hands That Serve has been looking for the best venue to serve children. As a result of our search, HTS has recently joined hands in service with Kingdom House of St. Louis. Kingdom House has been transforming lives since 1902 by offering help to families with young children who live below the poverty line. This joint effort will help keep their Food Pantry stocked and support services which help young families achieve a better life and break the cycle of poverty.
