What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our mission is to positively impact communities by connecting people to enriching volunteer experiences. By harnessing the power of volunteers, HandsOn Suburban Chicago (HOSC) strengthens 44 communities and builds capacity for over 100 nonprofits in Northern Cook and Northern DuPage Counties. In addition to helping nonprofits, HOSC volunteers also help support a large underserved population of seniors with a wide array of services that helps them age in place, promote socialization and reduce isolation. Additionally HOSC mobilizes volunteers to deliver academic and social support to under resourced and at-risk youth. HOSC also educates nonprofits about volunteerism and best practices in the field through yearly trainings and classes to our communities.
