What we have done: Allie Hand of Joy is an anti-poverty program designed to offer love, hope, and compassion to the senior citizens living within the Hanford CA community. The program is spearheaded by Hunger Free America and co-founder Tiera J. Conley. Miss. Conley program envisioned providing food assistance and other life-changing services to seniors and disabled people who were sick or shut-in. Many elderly people have no family members to visit them on a regular basis to provide much-needed assistance such a food and other goods. The program utilizes young adolescents to provide food assistance and other life-changing services to seniors and disabled people.
