Hands On Nashville (HON) works to address critical issues facing the Middle Tennessee community through volunteer-centric programming. Annually, HON connects thousands of volunteers to service opportunities supporting area nonprofits as well as its programs in urban agriculture, home energy savings, youth leadership development and support of public education.
It all started with one Nashvillian’s desire to find meaningful ways for people to volunteer back in 1991. (Read more about our story here.)
