Hand2Paw’s mission is to provide a safe and supportive work environment for youth, ages 16-24, who are experiencing housing insecurity or foster care involvement, as a means of enhancing resilience, compassion, and connection with people, animals and the community of Philadelphia.
We believe every person and animal deserves:
- A clean, supportive, enriching and stress free environment that promotes learning in positive ways
- A sense of purpose and control
- Opportunities for social connection and support
- To learn coping skills that will help them navigate the stresses and challenges of life
