Housing and Neighborhood Development Services, Inc. or HANDS Inc. is a nonprofit housing group based in Orange, New Jersey. Since 1986, the organization has worked to revitalize residential and commercial properties throughout the tri-state area through foreclosure and negotiations with the owners.[1] The rehabilitated homes and business properties are then resold to the community, generally to low-income citizens.[2] In recent years, HANDS has worked with the local art organization ValleyArts to convert properties into art galleries.[3] The projects are secured by federal and state community reinvestment funding.[3]
