About Us


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 many 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.

We are a ministry that follows the early church mission of not only teaching the Word, but by putting it into practice. By doing our best in assisting our clients in having their basic needs met (food, clothing, shelter etc.) our clients begin to have hope again that they can rebuild their lives after prison.  Our main focus is prisoner reentry offering a hand up, not a handout. We provide housing (most with utilities), transportation, meals, clothing, hygiene products, and most importantly, a clean and sober environment. Our goal is to help our clients to successfully adjust and reintegrate into society.
