I have been a huge fan of Clapping Hands since its inception because I witnessed the impact it had on the lives of children I referred, all of whom needed scholarships. The joy, creativity, and utter FUN they experienced was the highlight of their summers, but it was the physical and emotional safety they experienced in that empowering, loving, and supportive environment that was the true impact. It was literally transformative in the lives of many of those children.” – Jo Sanders, former director of the Family Violence Rape Crisis Center in Chatham County Explore our website for more information about our scholarship program and becoming a donor.

“Louise does a great job of creating a safe place. What I mean by a safe place is that kids are free and comfortable to create and be themselves. Or even if they show up and don’t know who they are, they leave knowing themselves better.”
– Valine Zeigler, parent
