Get Help, Give Help: HandsOn Central Ohio Gets You There
What began more than 30 years ago as a small group of volunteers taking calls and directing callers on where to get help, has evolved into an organization with the mission of strengthening and enhancing the quality of life in the Central Ohio community by mobilizing volunteers and connecting people to critical community resources.
Since the early 1970s, HandsOn Central Ohio has evolved by joining forces with other agencies, expanding existing programming and developing new programs as the needs of the community changed.
Today, HandsOn Central Ohio is a multi-faceted organization, with a diversity of programs connecting those in need to resources, and pairing available volunteers to the nonprofit sector. HandsOn Central Ohio has adapted to the community, reflecting the current challenges faced by individuals and families and the trends in volunteerism over time.
Whether through the 2-1-1 call center, where operators listen to callers, access a database and connect the caller to agencies which can help, or through one of many volunteer recruitment efforts in which volunteers' skills are matched to appropriate programs or nonprofits, HandsOn Central Ohio stands ready to help.
