How you can help

Hindu Charities For America (HC4A) was conceived for the purpose of providing Indian communities across the United States an opportunity to give back to the communities who have embraced us and given us the chance to prosper.

We have already recognized our responsibility to help improve the quality of life back home in India. We have contributed our time and money to build schools, temples, hospitals and more. HC4A has launched various initiatives to help Hindu communities get involved in giving back to their local societies.

According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, 1.2 million children are homeless on any given night in the United States. Analysis of recently released federal data shows that the number of homeless children and youth identified in public schools has increased for the second year in a row, and by 41% over the past two school years.

There are over a million homeless children in America who need your help and support. HC4A aims to support these children’s education, by annually donating school supplies. The sever situations which homeless children face are evident through the following video :
