HandsOn Northwest North Carolina mobilizes people and organizations that inspire community change. We connect nonprofits with the resources needed to develop capacity, and we connect volunteers with nonprofits needing services. We work closely with the 400+ different nonprofits in our network, and we touch the lives of thousands of volunteers each year. While we have a central focus in Winston-Salem/ Forsyth County, our core services are available to organizations and citizens in the surrounding communities of Davidson, Davie, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin Counties.
