The Mission of HandsOn Northwest North Carolina

HandsOn Northwest North Carolina strengthens our community by building the capacity of our nonprofits and increasing volunteerism. We connect nonprofits with the resources needed to develop capacity, and we connect volunteers with nonprofits needing services.  We work closely with the 350+ 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. Donate Now to HandsOn!

Kerri Humphrey

Kerri Humphrey has been a dedicated volunteer for The Sergei Foundation since 2012. She actually knew Sergei, the Siberian Husky the organization was founded after, when she was a vet tech at his veterinary hospital.  Kerri now uses her professional and community connections to obtain much needed fundraising and event sponsorships for The Sergei Foundation and is constantly an advocate for the organization's mission of saving companion pets' lives for families unable to afford emergency-level care.

In addition, Kerri has been on the planning committee for The Sergei Foundation's major fundraising event, Triad Dog Games, for the past two years. An event of this scale needs take-charge individuals, and her "can-do" attitude really pulls together the team and loose ends to help us ensure a successful event. 

"Kerri is one of those volunteers that every organization wishes they had," says President, Karen Fullerton.  "She is reliable, pro-active, and has the thick skin needed when working in the non-profit world.  She is truly a valuable asset and is greatly needed and appreciated - which I hope never goes without saying."

All of us want to enjoy a rich, full existence. Some of us may require some extra help to make it happen. That’s what The Enrichment Center  is all about — empowering the lives of adults with disabilities through art, education and employment. They believe that everyone in our community deserves to live the best possible life.

Through their Day Program, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) explore many different avenues to support personal independence and promote social, physical and emotional well-being.  Adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities face new challenges as they age. Activities in this program are geared toward maintaining skills and remaining active in an engaging environment.  My Turn helps individuals stay in their home of choice longer, delaying institutional levels of living because they have a place to be during the day where they are connected to their friends, the arts and the community.  A paying job is an enormous source of pride and personal independence. Their Employment Gateway program is part of a nationwide vocational rehabilitation network of services that helps adults with disabilities find full- or part-time work. An employment specialist helps pair the individual to a job that matches his or her skills and interests, and then provides on-the-job training and support until the individual can perform the job independently.  The Enrichment Center is also an affiliated chapter of The Arc, a leading national organization that advocates for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
