Equity and Inclusion | Hands-On House

Hands-on House is a place for all children!

At Hands-on House, children are the driving force behind what we do. We want to encourage their fullest potential as artists, scientists, inventors, explorers, and above all— empathetic global citizens. With a focus on diversity and inclusion, Hands-on House is working to become a state-of-the-art learning center, educational resource, and cultural gathering place for all children in Lancaster County and beyond. Through developing partnerships with other community organizations, we hope to serve children from across the socio-economic spectrum by being a place where all children (along with the adults in their lives), feel welcomed, valued, connected, and included.
