A HandsOn Action Center

United Way's Volunteer Center has been officially designated as a HandsOn Action Center. HandsOn is the largest volunteer network in the nation and includes more than 250 Action Centers worldwide. These centers work "community-wide" across various issues to develop high-impact volunteer programming.

Through building relationships with nonprofit, school, faith-based, corporate partners and others, Action Centers play a critical role in leveraging volunteer power to the fullest effect.
