Our Story

Our journey to serve others began in 2015

We are a worldwide ministry that seeks to empower, encourage, and equip the limb different community.

Connor Hart, founder of the Hands of Hope Foundation, was a sophomore in highschool when his engineering teacher asked him if he wanted to be a part of a project that involved 3D printing. Up for the challenge, Connor joined a team of three other students who had volunteered. The project?  To design a 3-D printed prosthetic for 7-year-old girl named Hope. Led by their engineering teacher, Peter Leeper, the team researched, experimented, and tested models for months. A year after meeting Hope for the first time, they presented her with the final arm, personalized just for her. Hope loved her arm and was proud to show off her unique arm and her prosthetic to her friends. The students formed the Hands of Hope club shortly after completing Hope’s arm. They worked with several other clients to create personalized prosthetics but it wasn’t long before the school decided to drop the club from the lack of interest from students. One member of the club, however, didn’t want to see this unique opportunity stop. In 2018, Connor Hart founded The Hands of Hope Foundation – an official non-profit so that kids could continue to be empowered by 3-D printing technology.
