"The Diabetes Hands Foundation began in 2008 driven by the strong belief that no one living with diabetes should feel alone. Since its formation, DHF’s online communities (TuDiabetes.org and EsTuDiabetes.org) have made this vision a reality for more than 20 million visitors. We have brought together people touched by diabetes and provided the support and education needed to positively impact their lives.
DHF has relied heavily on the generosity of industry partners, private foundations, and individual donors to help fund our mission and support our communities. Unfortunately, due to increasing costs and the competition presented by a growing number of non-profit organizations competing for limited funds, DHF’s Board of Directors has determined that it is in the best interests of its charitable mission to wind up its operations while partnering with another organization offering support and education for those affected by diabetes, to ensure a sustainable future for our vibrant online communities.
We are pleased to announce that Beyond Type 1, a non-profit organization serving the diabetes community, will provide a new home for our communities, and carry on the important work that DHF started. In arriving at this point, the Board of Directors conducted a thorough search to ensure that DHF’s online communities will transition to an organization that will honor their legacy in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, in English and Spanish, and help take them to the next level. We are confident that Beyond Type 1 can do just that and are committed to working with them on the transition to make certain that people touched by diabetes will continue to have the support and education they need and deserve.
On behalf of the DHF Board of Directors and Staff, we would like to thank the many people who have made it possible for DHF to serve the diabetes community. Although we are ceasing operations as an entity, we continue to believe that no one living with diabetes should feel alone, and are certain that this change will enable our communities to continue to support this important mission for a long time to come."
