Welcome to the Many Hands Community!

Our Mission:

Many Hands Community creates educational settings in which we nurture children and families through community spirit, personal empowerment and connection with the land, while fostering a culture of acceptance.

Many Hands Community is a dynamic not-for-profit organization. It is an intimate collaboration between local non-profit organizations, each with their own mission, and brought together under a united goal. The Many Hands Community is a land stewardship program designed to rent out the land & facilities to interested parties & create revenue that will then support the Many Hands Educational Community Center.

MHECC is a year-round program involving children, parents, and community members. It’s goal is education and multi-cultural programs, recreation, community improvement, and service activities.

Incorporating elements of Social and Emotional Learning, Life-role Education and Community Awareness Education through Peace Village Curriculum, the traditional wisdom and the applied spirituality of the Native American Sacred Hoop teachings.

Long Term Goal:

Every child grows up with a sense of self and community and is given the tools to navigate both effectively with an understanding of the inter-relatedness to help them become whole and healthy human beings.
