Since 2004, we’ve served the Fredericksburg area youth with vocational training, job placement, educational services, and one-on-one mentoring services.


As a faith-based nonprofit, we engage the whole person. We aim to help people live with a sense of God-given purpose and hope, better equipped to serve their communities.


We have partnered with dozens of local area businesses, providing opportunities for hundreds of youth as they pursue their plans, dreams, and goals. Join us!

Critical Mission

“Open Hand gives an opportunity for youth to excel, and make some mistakes, in a job situation with the support of mentors and without the normal pressures of a regular job. I am very much in support of the mission and vision of Open Hand and I look forward to a continued partnership with them through their GRAD program.”
