Our Story

In 1990, Marty Moore was looking for opportunities to volunteer, but working as a young real estate broker with limited free time made it difficult to find community-based organizations that could use his help. In 1993, Marty gathered some friends and started Make A Difference, an organization with the mission to meet critical community needs while creating volunteer opportunities especially designed for working people. Since then, we have experienced tremendous growth and are now HandsOn Greater Phoenix, the Valley's premier volunteer organization.

Today, civic participation occurs at many levels. We make impactful decisions about our community every time we make a purchase, vote, post on social media, and, of course, volunteer. We think any awareness we can bring to the many resources that might spur individual action for good, falls right in line with what we’re up to at HandsOn.
