Our volunteers are still the heart of Open Hand.

Without you, there is no way we could effectively serve the thousands of friends and neighbors who rely on us each and every day.

Dates book up fast, so it’s best to try to reserve your group volunteer shift(s) as much in advance as possible. Our Volunteer Services team will always work diligently to match your group with the most impactful service opportunity possible.
