Tornado disaster response

On Dec. 9, 2023, devastating tornadoes ripped through Middle Tennessee.

While we have seen ravaged homes and families in need, in the aftermath there is hope.

We encourage all our volunteers not to forget about those who need their help the most.

Joining the United Way

As of Jan. 1, Hands On Nashville and United Way of Greater Nashville are one entity. We will still be the same Hands On you know and love, but with UWGN's support, we'll be able to expand our services into eight neighboring counties! This means more volunteer opportunities, increased disaster coordination, and expanded services for our nonprofit partners.
