No previous experience or special skills required, just a willingness to jump in, work hard and help out.

Help Us Bring Hope In Unordinary Ways

All Hands Volunteers is not your ordinary disaster response organization. Our volunteers aren’t ordinary, our projects aren’t ordinary, the needs we meet aren’t ordinary. We move into communities and call them home. This means we can listen to what the real needs of the community are, and every set of volunteers has unique strengths which come into play in finding creative ways to serve these differing needs. Nothing’s too outside of the box, because to us, there is no box to begin with.
