For Every Little Handprint was founded with a singular goal: alleviating the effects of childhood poverty in Western New York and beyond. While it’s simple to say that in a single sentence, our approach is multifaceted. We aim to help children and families at home, in school and in the community.
Our four pillars are Literacy, School Supplies, Creativity and Mentorship. Through our programs, we give kids and teens access to great books and the tools they need to succeed in school. We also help connect them with role models who serve as guides and mentors, and provide programming that helps young people recognize and grow the creativity that is so often lost during adolescence — especially when you’re grappling with a challenge as complex as poverty.
