How can the impoverished communities be empowered to change their conditions? THE ACTIVE HAND Ministry believes the key to solving community issues is by preparing our youths as future leaders and forming grassroots organizations that connect individuals, organizations, municipalities and law makers with the impoverished needs of the community. If we didn’t train our youths as future leaders, and put them in strategic positions of leadership, poor people would remain in their spiritual, social and economical conditions.
THE ACTIVE HAND Ministry realizes that poor and marginalized people, in the Greater Richmond area, the Tri-City area and surrounding counties can effect change in their conditions if they invest in their youths through structured leadership programs and forming grassroots agencies that will demand those changes in their communities.
THE ACTIVE HAND Ministry (TAHM) is a 501 c 3 grassroots, community organizing, organization incorporated on May 17, 2007, and exempted April 8, 2008 as a public charity. TAHM is not a church nor does it recognize any denomination.
While keeping to our mission of helping people change their spiritual, social and economic conditions , The Active Hand Ministry have committed time consuming research to bring peoples’ goals to successful conclusions. We have located people to build wheel chair access ramps, renovate non profits’ building interiors, provided toys and clothing for children and adults and many other needed provisions for change. We continue to provide research in the areas of needed provisions. However, today our services have become fee based. Hourly=$15.00-$25.00. Sliding fee based upon the the total cost which includes the research, the total cost of the project and any contact The Active Hand Ministry may have to contribute in writing, visitations or personal connections to see the project successfully completed. Generally, many non profit services are more conclusive when another non profit initiate the process. The Active Hand Ministry is happy to help people obtain their goals by doing the research and initiating their goal oriented projects.
