Heart to Hand Ministries, Inc. was started in November 1992 by Woody Wolfe, Jr. and a few friends, after Woody had spent nearly eleven years visiting hospitalized children in a children's hospital in his home town. Initially, Woody found that music was a way to give these kids back a piece of their childhood that is so often snatched from them in these situations. They have to grow up quickly to deal with everything that is involved with their care. He soon found out that if you brought smiles and laughter back into a child's life, you did the same for the whole family. He also knew how important spiritual support was for these patients and families who often felt trapped in the hopelessness of their situations.

Due to changes from the pandemic Woody now ministers weekly at the Janet Weis Children's Hospital and Geisinger Medical Center in Danville. He also visits various nursing facilities in and around Danville, PA. Prior to the pandemic he also visited Penn State Children's Hospital in Hershey, PA, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, PA; Phoenix Children's Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona; Carilion Community Hospital in Roanoke, Virginia and Palmetto Richland Cancer Center in Columbia, South Carolina. Additionally, we have been able to take this outreach into the central United States with visits to Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee and Children's Hospital Colorado in Aurora, Colorado.

For forty-one years, Woody has also provided music for various special needs/medical camps in Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Arizona, Montana, Idaho, Indiana, Minnesota, Michigan, Missouri and Hawaii. Current camps include Camp Rainbow, Camp Not-A-Wheeze and Camp Patrick in Arizona; Camp KEMO and Camp New Horizons in South Carolina; Camp Dost, Camp Courage, Good Grief Day Camp and Camp Koala in Pennsylvania

In addition to hospital outreach, Heart to Hand has been involved in outreach to the orphaned children, and those with special medical needs, of Ukraine since Woody’s first visit there in 1998. For more info on the Ukraine Projects,
