Denny Hancock

Mamma’s Hands Co-Founder and President

Denny Hancock is the visionary behind Mamma’s Hands. His idea of a “mother’s unconditional love for her child” is at the heart of its mission and work. The House of Hope was born out of his desire to help mothers and children in crisis, and its family-centered focus reflects Denny’s deep love of family. Denny has made it his life’s work to aid those in need by being right there on the front lines. When he’s not helping at the House of Hope or taking Phone Home volunteers to the streets of Seattle, Denny loves spending time with wife Leslie, his five children, fifteen grandchildren and friends.
