About Us

HandUp is crowdfunding for homeless people and neighbors in need. Through our web and SMS platform, the community can donate directly to specific homeless and at-risk HandUp members. Members use their HandUp credits for basic needs like food, clothing, and medical care through local human service organizations. We’re pioneering new technology to help fight urban poverty in the US.

We believe that we’re all better off in a society where everyone can meet their basic needs. Therefore it’s our responsibility to do something, however small, about the problems we see in the world, however large. That’s why we created HandUp - to leverage technology and the power of human relationships to fight urban poverty.

New solutions to poverty are within our reach.
