Thank you for helping South Oakland Shelter!

As many of you likely saw in our update, South Oakland Shelter (SOS) is now the proud owner of the HandUp platform. Donations from the National Fund have helped us get HandUp up and running in Detroit. We are grateful for your continued support.

HandUp’s mission is to use the power of technology and human relationships to fight poverty, and these tools have empowered us in recent years to better fulfill our own mission: building communities that end homelessness. We are proud to inherit and continue HandUp’s legacy as we extend our work into building digital communities."

  • Ryan Hertz, CEO of SOS
