Hands On Network

Hands On Network (formerly CityCares) is leading a national civic movement bringing people together to tackle tough community problems. The organizing force behind the movement is our growing network of local nonprofit organizations that act as civic action centers. The Hands On approach inspires volunteers, creates leaders, and changes lives and communities through effective volunteer action. Hands On is rooted in the belief that every individual has the power to make a difference. We believe that engaged citizens are the cornerstone of a vibrant democracy, and that effective volunteer action is a path to broader civic involvement. Hands On is a proven approach to community gain, a unique network of innovative organizations, and a broad movement advancing civic engagement.
