Hand Up Needs and Accomplishments
David C. Nichols, President and Executive Director
Chapel Number: (405) 236-1269
Hand Up is a 501C3 Corporation that can issue a tax receipt for donations of materials or
money. We have helped thousands over the 26+ years we have taken men and women
straight out of prison, who would otherwise be homeless. To make sure they reenter
society, we get their ID”s, help them get jobs, provide transportation to and from work
and any other place needed, housing with some food, clothing, personal items, etc. At this
time we are housing over 300 clients with only 6 unemployed. Five of them have been
here less than 4 weeks. Many of them come to us with serious mental issues and cannot
work. We carry these until we can get them on social security, or reinstated on social
security. Right now we are housing 80 to 90 of these. Most cannot move out into society
because they don’t receive enough to live anywhere else.
Hand Up works with over 100 employers. We drug test randomly and as we feel it is
needed. Therefore, our clients make good and dependable employees. The biggest
problem is that we never have enough beds to match the need. So we are always building
as the money allows us to do so. All donations of materials speeds up that process. Any
help is appreciated. Our website is huminc.org. I can be reached at email@example.com or
Sincerely may God bless you richly,
David C. Nichols
Hand Up Ministries
Hand Up Ministries is a Faith based prison after-care program for men that have just been released from prison. We offer a “Hand Up” NOT a “Hand Out”. We provide housing complete with utilities, transportation, meals, clothing, hygiene products and, most importantly, a structured environment to help these men and women re-adjust to society.
We offer 24/7 addiction recovery & support with weekly group meetings and weekly individual counseling as needed. We have classes twice each week to strengthen character development, life skills and others as needed by the individual. Residents are encouraged to attend the church of their choice.
We help residents find permanent employment or if they are unable to work, we help to get Social Security and/or Veterans Benefits started. Our goal is to assist them in being able to support themselves so that they do not remain homeless.
We charge a nominal program fee after permanent employment or other support has been established.
Hand Up Ministries was founded in July of 1996 by a man with a vision inspired by God. Over the years this ministry has grown exponentially and has helped hundreds of men and women. We are looking forward to many more years to come as we grow and are able to acquire more property.
