Hands Together of the Palm Beaches is an all-volunteer organization that is run by a Board of seven members. We have 2 Haitian board members who are invaluable in guiding us to work in a culturally sensitive way. Three members of the Board speak Haitian Creole which contributes to the transparency and accountability of our work in Haiti. Our work is based out of an office in Lake Worth, Florida which is the site of most of our local programs. We are financially supported by donations and grants.
