Become a Nonprofit Partner

Are you are a local nonprofit in need of volunteers? Let Hands On Atlanta partner with you!

Hands On Atlanta works with community groups through the referral agency program and Civic Partnership Program. These programs allow us to connect volunteers to program needs in the community. Referrals are the entry point for many agencies who need volunteers, but do not have volunteer projects that fit HOA’s current model of service or staff capacity. Please read carefully the Become a Partner page and the Become a Referral page to see how your agency can work with us!

Our staff works with organizations to identify their most pressing needs, create projects to bridge gaps and deploy teams of volunteers to make a difference. Becoming a partner will allow you to take advantage of our website to connect your needs with a pool of local and national volunteers. You will be able to post all types of volunteer opportunities on our events calendar, engage and manage volunteers and track volunteer activities.
