Hands On Birmingham's (HOB) mission is to connect people with organized and meaningful volunteer opportunities to improve their community. 



HOB provides flexible hands-on volunteer opportunities for busy people. Last year, over 6, 700 volunteers donated over 23,000 hours of hands-on service to the community.

We accomplish our mission through a guilt-free model whereby people can volunteer when it is convenient as an individual or part of a team.

Volunteer opportunities come in many shapes and sizes depending on individual or team preferences. Volunteers can brighten a learning environment with fresh paint, organize a clothes closet, dig in the dirt, visit the elderly, tutor a child, prepare and serve a meal...use your imagination!

All of these projects make a measurable difference in our community and it was done by YOU!

Served Meal

We make it easy for you to make a difference! Browse hundreds of hands-on service activities in every area of interest. HOB partners with almost 200 nonprofits and schools in five different counties.

If you can't find it, we'll research it for you!

Our Vision

At HOB, we believe that volunteers can inspire change in the community. ONE hour. ONE day. ONE month. It doesn't take long to make a lasting difference in your community. We believe everyone has the time to care.
