Lori’s Hands, founded in 2009, is a service learning organization based in Newark, Delaware. Each year over 100 community members are served by Lori’s Hands with the help of college student volunteers. The organization’s clientele includes individuals who are living at home with a chronic illness and willing to share their experiences with the student volunteers who assist them. During the period covered by this report, only students from the University of Delaware (UD), and from any major, were participating as Lori’s Hands volunteers.
