HandUp lets you donate directly to specific homeless people and neighbors in need via personalized web profiles. 100% of donations go toward basic needs like medical care, employment, and housing expenses redeemed through trusted nonprofit partners. HandUp creates a technology platform for those in need to share their personal story and build a wider network of support through a community of donors. Based in San Francisco, HandUp has 13 nonprofit partners across 5 metro areas in the US from the San Francisco Bay Area to Detroit, Oregon and Washington State. HandUp is a for-profit benefit corporation focused on leveraging the power of technology and human relationships to alleviate urban poverty.
