Stories of impact
The opportunities I have received from Hands4Hope has helped me realize that my potential is far greater than I had originally perceived it to be.
There are no limits on the positive impact H4H can have on youth especially as they are trying to find out where they fit in and if they are heard and respected by others in the community.
Hands4Hope has helped fuel me and made me who I am.
Ryan Christopher Hersh Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Ryan Christopher Hersh Memorial Scholarship Fund is a fund in memory of Ryan Christopher Hersh, who passed away at the age of 18. Ryan was an active participant in Hands4Hope for multiple years. To honor Ryan and his love of serving, his grandparents created this fund so that others may explore needs in their community and have the opportunity to take action in their own way, as Ryan did through Hands4Hope.
