‘A Hand Up’ Future Leaders

A Hand Up Program


Unlike many children’s homes, the PFP children do not “age out” once they turn 18. Instead, all PFP students are transitioned into the AHU program. Each person enrolled in our program will be seen all the way through University, trade school or employment. We work with each one to provide the greatest chance at success. 

The ‘A Hand Up’ Program aims to empower vulnerable young adults in our community. The goal is to  enable them to become functioning members of society and to continue the cycle of giving and hope. Recipients of this scholarship are vulnerable young men and women who are determined, hard working, skilled and who have a desire to give back. The recipients will not be receiving a hand out–rather they will receive a hand up. AHU will provide financial assistance and mentoring to hard working adults and will provide a means to help them improve their own lives by allowing them to complete their education, learn a trade or start a business. Applicants will be expected to continue the cycle of giving in their own community.
