One ministry that Premier partners with is called By the Hand. By the Hand is a Chicago-based outreach program that services neglected children in the under-resourced, and dangerous neighborhoods of Chicago and surrounding areas.
By the Hand believes that the solution in solving Chicago’s crime and poverty rates begins with the children. They invest in the future with their amazing after school program.
