Radiant Hands Inc. is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization established in 2005 to provide assistance to women and families in need. In particular, Radiant Hands helps those people who might not qualify for typical social service assistance, either because they are employed or for some other reason. After operating from Gainesville FL for about 10 years, in June 2014, the administrative office was relocated to Tampa, Florida and the area of service was expanded. With the expansion, new services have become available including "Individual and Family Counseling" and guidance to resources for "Job Training, Money Management, English Language & GED courses." In August of 2015, Radiant Hands began working with the resettlement and integration of refugees from Muslim and/or Arabic-speaking countries into the Tampa Bay Community.
