  • Our Impact

Our mission is to empower and uplift communities through sustainable initiatives that address the diverse needs of individuals facing adversity. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive regardless of their background. Through a variety of projects fostering sustainable development, education, and health, we enable volunteers to contribute positively in their local community via community outreach programs and in the global community by adopting well-contained projects of existing organizations overseas. We advocate for positive change and creating a world where every individual has the opportunity to lead a dignified and fulfilling life.

At Caring Hands, our philosophy is encapsulated in the simple yet profound statement: "We Serve, Therefore We Are." This foundational belief is the heartbeat of our organization, defining our commitment to making a positive impact on those in need. Through service, we define our identity and purpose. Ultimately, "We Serve, Therefore We Are" is an open invitation to create a world where service becomes a collective expression of humanity, transforming lives and communities for the better.

Our impact extends far beyond immediate assistance; it is a testament to our unwavering commitment to create positive and lasting change. Through a holistic approach to community engagement, compassionate outreach, and sustainable initiatives, we strive to uplift the lives of individuals and families in need. So far, we have improved the lives of over 5,000 disadvantaged people in more than 5 countries over a span of 12 years.  Together, with caring hearts and committed hands, we are shaping a future where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

The Lunch Bag Service program is a testament to the spirit of volunteerism prevalent in our community. Caring Hands volunteers take turns signing up to make 150 bagged lunches and deliver them to homeless shelters or soup kitchens every Saturday and Sunday in the San Francisco Bay Area. This program has been running since February, 2012. In addition to lunch bags, we also have been distributing personal care kits to homeless shelters since 2020. We provide 150 personal care kits once a month.
