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.

NEW! Join us on January 20th for our 8th annual Read-In event to commemorate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. Hosted by Wnston-Salem State University, the Read-In promotes King's legacy of service, education, and community empowerment to children aged 4-10. Each child is matched with a "reading buddy," and the pairs participate in a variety of activity stations focused on Dr. King's legacy. Help us make this a day on instead of a day off by spending your morning reading with a child and and encouraging their dreams! Details about the event and how to register as a volunteer can be found here.
