Mission:
Infinite Hands Initiative (IHI), is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Houston, Texas that services the local community and was formed February 2012 to promote self-sufficiency through hands-on seminars providing hands on information on how to start and/or run a small business. IHI was formed as a two part program and IHI’s Koats 4 Kids mission is to provide local child(ren) with a new winter coat. IHI seeks to partner with other like minded exempt organizations.
Adult clients who participate and graduate from one or more of the Adult Continued Learning seminars become first beneficiaries of the Koats 4 Kids Program and receive a new koat 4 each child. Ensuring healthier child(ren) that are able to attend school regularly and will develop a strong self-esteem.
Results:
I began volunteering as an insructor and with the constant community interest IHI is moving forward and combining both programs to benefit low income individuals. Since 2010 there have been 25 plus graduates who qualify for the Koats 4 Kids program.

Two new businesses were formed recently during the Shark Tank Entrepreneurial Workshops. New workshops begin September 21, and updates will be posted.
