Free After-School Care
By the Hand emphasizes academic excellence and nurtures the whole child - mind, body and soul.
By The Hand has always been known for emphasizing a holistic approach to child development. We literally and figuratively take our kids by the hand and walk alongside them from the time they enroll in our program until they’re walking independently as well-adjusted, responsible adults. 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 our Programs
Because reading is a major predictor of academic success, By The Hand offers a technology-enabled, blended learning program to help our first- to eighth-grade students improve their literacy skills. By combining computerized assessment and reading instruction with personalized attention, our kids improved their reading level by 1.1 grades last year, with some students improving more than five levels.
100 percent of our kids receive hot, nutritious meals and basic clothing and medical care, including dental and eye care—and eyeglasses when necessary.
We enroll and serve kids based on need, regardless of faith or religion. While our program is faith-based, participation in religious activities is optional and completely voluntary for all program participants. Children may be invited to join in religious services or events, but their decision to–or not to–participate does not influence the nature or quality of services provided.
