Hands On Miami (HOM) was created in 1993 by people in search of a user-friendly approach to community service. Hectic or unpredictable schedules often make it difficult to conform to the hours most social services agencies require of their volunteers. HOM provides the solution by creating flexibly-scheduled, meaningful, direct service volunteer opportunities.
In partnership with schools, social service and environmental organizations, HOM organizes more than 60 service opportunities each month offering thousands of Miamians the chance to make a difference in our community. Volunteers can spend a morning delivering care packages to AIDS patients in a local hospital, an evening reading to children in an emergency shelter, or an afternoon planting native vegetation to restore our natural beach ecosystems. The HOM model makes community service accessible on anyone's schedule. Projects take place outside traditional work hours. Flexible time commitments permit volunteers to serve once a week, once a month, or whenever they can.
