Ministry Description
Both Hands' mission is to fulfill James 1:27 by serving orphans, widows, and Christian adoptive families. Both Hands' purpose is to help Christian adoptive families raise funds for their adoptions by coordinating a service project fixing up a widow's home. Both Hands' vision is to see the day when finances are not an obstacle for Christian families who are led to adopt, while simultaneously serving every widow in need of home repairs. Committed to fundraising support for its operating expenses through private donors, no funds raised for the family's adoption are deducted for Both Hands' operating costs. From 2008-July 2017, Both Hands has raised over $8,135,000 for adoption funding and orphan causes. Through the 704 Both Hands projects done in 43 states, 777 widows have been served with home improvements, 840 orphans are closer to being welcomed home, and over 21,000 volunteers have been moved to serve others.

A Both Hands Project helps people to raise funds for orphans while serving a widow through home improvement projects. A team of volunteers request sponsorship for their day of service. The money raised through sponsorship goes toward funding adoptions and orphan care initiatives.
