The West Side Helping Hand Board of Directors, the staff, volunteers, the kids and their families express profound gratitude for a generous grant from The Ed Rachal Foundation. It is the generous commitment from local foundations and donors like you that allow West Side Helping Hand give at-risk children a chance on life. We are currently serving 135 kids daily in our after-school program. We have a 40 kid waiting list and we are out of room. We have plans to expand in the future in order to help more kids and their families.
