About Us

By His Hands is a registered public 501(C)(3) charity foundation and was founded by Steven J Coker in May 2013, and was established to meet the needs of the poor, homeless, and the marginalized, within the Raleigh area. Our goal is very simple, and that is to reach out and to meet the basic, essential, and necessary needs of those who find themselves in desperate circumstances. We strongly believe, we can be of impact, not only in meeting their physical needs, but we also believe we can be instrumental in the restoration of hope, to these our invisible neighbors, who are hungry, poor, marginalized, and homeless, and in critical need of life's most basic necessities.

As we carry out our mission to make a difference, our focus will always be to help individuals and support families where it is needed the most. Our primary focus is to meet each individual and family at the very point of their need and to do so, with a heart of love, kindness, and compassion, while understanding and acknowledging our very own shortcomings.

By His Hands is a 100% volunteer staff, and we accept public donations and contributions through individuals, companies, and agencies which allow our mission statement to become a reality for those in need. You can help us do what is necessary, so we can do the possible, in hope that one day we can do the impossible for all of those here within the Raleigh area who find themselves in the entanglement of poverty and homelessness.

We would like for you to not only support us financially, and with your time, but to tell your family and friends about By His Hands, and to be a champion of our cause. Join us, as we impact the lives of those in need in a most basic, yet profound manner.

On behalf of all those who are in need, By His Hands would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and please remember, that you are powerful beyond measure in changing a life. If you pause to reflect on that for a moment, I think you will agree, there is absolutely no better gift that one can receive.

Since we are young and growing, as a private foundation, I am reminded of something Martin Luther said... "We are not what we shall be, but we are on the way; the process is not yet finished, but it has begun."

It is our sincere hope as we grow, that the action of our deeds in addressing the needs of those in desperate circumstances, along with the respect and compassion for one solitary life, will exceed all of our speech and beliefs.


By His Hands is committed to "Make a Stand" for the homeless, poor, and those in need.
One Commitment, One Community, One Life & One Now!  
Please remember that By His Hands needs YOU! 


It is never what ONE BELIEVES, but rather what ONE DOES, that makes ALL the DIFFERENCE!
