Who We Are


Please take a look around our website and take some time to read through the success stories of a some of our families. You might be surprised to notice we have an exceptional amount of victories!

Hands Across the Bay takes the unique approach of identifying the circumstances surrounding the crisis in order to best serve our families. Our team strives to be flexible and creative in utilizing our resources and partnerships in an effort to sufficiently assist them in getting back to the road of independence. It is through this collaboration that we have been able to truly create an impact in their lives. The families we assist are those whom we sincerely believe need a helping hand and honestly desire transformation for their lives.

We pride ourselves in keeping our promise that the donations from our supporters are going directly to assist families and other small organizations in the community. Gold & Diamond Source, the company my husband Steve and I own, donates the cost of our office space, most of our supplies, and the majority of our staff’s salaries. I also personally guarantee that my time and efforts at Hands Across the Bay are 100% volunteered. Despite us being a small organization we have worked miracles because it has always been a collective effort.

Seeing the success of our families is a constant reminder as to why I started Hands Across the Bay. Enjoy taking a look around, become inspired, and consider lending your support to help us help them.
