Hearts and Hands United:
A collaboration of Delaware County social service agencies – was formed in June 2008 for the purpose of providing services to people in our community to whom the agencies had previously individually provided. The group initially came together to provide school backpacks filled with school supplies for K-12th grade students in Delaware County. After the tremendous success of this endeavor, we organized the Coats Against the Cold campaign. By joining forces we are able to combine our resources of time, talents, and funding to more efficiently assist citizens in need.
Our primary objectives are:
· reduce or eliminate duplication of key services
· be better stewards of community resources
