General information

The organization was started with little or no funds in order to provide as many services as possible to less fortunate youth with a special focus on youth in transitional housing facilities (shelters, foster care) and their families. Many fish frys, raffles and other fundraising activities were held to meet the goals of the organization. The first mission of love in 1998 was to provide over 100 youth at the Henry Robinson Multi-Service Center with Easter Baskets. Many volunteers and supporters came forward to help. Today, the organization has grown to an 11 member Board of Directors with 7 Advisory Board Members, 13 and growing very important Ambassadors who carry out the day to day functions making sure the organization continues to provide very important services in our communities.

Our Story

Did You Know, the Lend A Hand Foundation (LAHF) started the first backpack giveaway program in downtown Oakland in 1997 in front of the Henry Robinson Multi-Service Center at the corner of 16th and Clay. In 1997, we provided 200 backpacks that were provided by a great sponsor. Then UPS, another sponsor who has been with LAHF since the beginning, used their expertise by stuffing the backpacks and delivering them to the site. To date, LAHF has provided over 85,000 backpacks and supplies to impoverished children and youth.

Giving of backpacks serves many purposes as it provides a sense of confidence, pride, preparedness, eliminates embarrassment, and relieves parents from bearing, most likely not available, the expense. Again, this August, LAHF and its volunteers will roll up its sleeves to support over 5,000 students attending schools needing support. The supplies will be delivered directly to the schools the sponsors have chosen to support.

Also, this year LAHF will celebrate its 20th Year Anniversary of the Backpack Program along with honoring many who paved the way to reach this milestone. Not only does LAHF provide a backpack program, it also attempts to eliminate as many barriers as possible that keep students from getting to school, participating, and achieving. We want the most fragile youth in our community to experience as many opportunities as possible so they too can thrive.

In December for the past 19 years, LAHF has held a Holiday Celebration for families mostly residing in transitional housing facilities. This event brings much joy to not only those on the receiving end but for all that are involved. Imagine 300+ children/teens, and parents walking into a room with large round tables covered with decorative table cloths, a stage covered with bags of gifts, the aroma of a delicious meal being prepared, entertainment, Santa, and soon as happy dine that almost raises the roof.
