About Us:

Since the 1990's, we have worked as volunteers and actively supported Veterans and their families through Veteran organizations, hospitals and outreach programs.  In 2012, a group of business, civic, religious leaders and veterans representatives from various organizations came together as a grass roots movement to reach out to veterans in need. Out of that meeting, Open Hands Outreach Program was formed. We are a 501(c) 3 non-profit, faith-based organization with a Focus on helping Veterans get the benefits they earned and the services they need. While our Focus is on veterans our outreach is to our community at large.
