“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller


For over 50 years, HandsOn Suburban Chicago (HOSC) has been fulfilling its mission to positively impact communities by connecting people to enriching volunteer experiences. HOSC mobilizes everyday people to lend their time, talents, and voices to increase the capacity of nonprofits and schools and drive change in 44 suburban communities. In addition to referring volunteers to 100+ community partners, HOSC harnesses the power of volunteerism to benefit high-needs students, enable vulnerable populations to age in their homes, and improve the socialization and well-being of seniors.


HOSC’s network of nonprofits, individual volunteers, and businesses address community needs holistically. By being a community partner, you will be connected to a vast network of resources and people who are passionate about making a positive impact in the community. You will have the opportunity to expand organizational capacity utilizing volunteers and increase your network, outreach, and resources.
