They recruit and train teams of volunteers to respond to the immediate devastation of natural disasters, then work with communities to rebuild for the future. All Hands and Hearts delivers Smart Response, assistance aimed at short- and long-term challenges. They work with local organizations and residents on the most urgent needs first, like gutting flooded houses or safely demolishing earthquake-affected buildings.
Once those crucial tasks are done, they shift their attention toward infrastructure—rebuilding schools, daycare facilities, and community centers so that they can better withstand future disasters.
And by living in the areas they serve, volunteers find creative ways to renew the community’s spirit. They’ve hosted movie nights for kids, taught financial literacy classes, and made Thanksgiving dinners.
All Hands and Hearts offers on-the-job training to anyone eager to make a difference. Their model gets efficient, effective to strengthen both the volunteer and the affected communities they serve.
