Four grants worth over $32,000 were awarded from Hand to Hand to San Diego County women’s nonprofit organizations.

Hand to Hand, a giving circle at Coastal Community Foundation, directs resources to programs that empower change and self-sufficiency in women. This giving circle is composed of 60 women who contribute funds and then choose worthy recipients.

Grantee Generate Hope, a residential treatment program for victims of sex trafficking, received $10,000 from Hand to Hand.
