About Us

Hands On Orlando's goal is to solve community problems by inspiring and empowering people to make a difference through volunteer action. 

We work hard to achieve this mission by identifying, planning, managing and leading hands-on volunteer projects.  All projects involve community and corporate volunteers who help a diverse array of non-profit organizations, public schools and parks, in ways that are meaningful to everyone involved.

Since 1999 we have assisted over 300 community organizations.  And our work has supported about 180,000 local, national and international volunteers.

Hands On Orlando has coordinated over 4000 hands-on projects that make a difference.  They typically last for about three hours and no long-term commitment is involves.  Projects do not help Hands On Orlando or involve fundraising or administrative tasks.  Many of our volunteers continue to support our partner organizations on an ongoing basis. 

Our calendar projects are free to join and open to the general public.  We also identify, coordinate and lead customized corporate and group team building projects.

As a federally tax-exempt, 501(c)3 non-profit, charitable organization, we are 100% supported by monetary donations from people like you, volunteers, groups and companies.  Every project we manage and every volunteer we serve actually costs us money.
