Building Healing Restoring
The King will reply, ‘I tell you, whenever you did this for one of the least important of these followers of mine, you did it for me!
Giving Hands Foundation, a 501c3 faith based organization, giving hope and restoration to women and children. Including, homeless, sex-trafficking, domestic violence, and cancer survivors, etc. Once a month we come together, offering free services such as hair, nails, facials, massages, make-up, a catered lunch, and a gift bag for each guest.
In May 2014, Vanessa Howard, founder of Giving Hands Foundation began to use her business as a tool to give back to the community. Once a month, Mrs. Howard along with dedicated volunteers, sacrifice their time to help those in need. The success stories have been phenomenal, over ninety-eight percent of women have received job and homes. Through prayer and dedication this organization has made a difference in the Tampa Bay Area, including being recognized as "Bay News 9 Community Hero of the Year!!!"
Giving Hands Foundation sponsors a Princess Party in August, where we provide young girls with a makeover, uniform, shoes, school supplies, and a book bag. These events help the girls to approach the new school year with pride, confidence and excitement. The mothers have the satisfaction of knowing their daughters are prepared, without the burden of worrying how they will make the financial sacrifices.
Giving Hands Foundation Annual Christmas Events are by far the most memorable. We help struggling parents fill their homes with toys and clothes for Christmas day. We also prepare a home cooked meal to feed the homeless. Lastly,we surprise the elderly residents in nearby Nursing Homes with robes, pajamas, sweet treats and lots of love.
