About this Event

The CPCU Society and WAHVE is honored to be partnering with HandsOn New Orleans as the non-profit of choice for the CPCU Society 2019 Annual Meeting Good Works Project.

PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO REACH OUR AMBITIOUS GOAL OF $4000! Click the green tickets button to make a contribution.

Realizing the power that volunteers have to make a true impact, HandsOn New Orleans works at a grass roots level to revitalize neighborhoods and create a more vibrant community through high impact service projects that address pressing needs. Donations contribute to funding supplies and materials for their projects at public schools, youth recreation centers, urban gardens/farms, and water management projects.

The CPCU Society would like to thank WAHVE for their generous sponsorship in support of the 2019 Good Works Project!

The Annual Meeting takes place September 21 – 24 in New Orleans. Donations will also be collected on-site along with a special give-back project in which attendees will have multiple opportunities to contribute to murals designed to beautify local New Orleans schools and youth centers with meaningful, inspiring art.

Our mission is to engage, empower, and transform our community through volunteer service. Since 2005, our team of two full professionals supported by seven AmeriCorps members have recruited over 116,000 volunteers serving 632,708 hours with $17,000.000 in community savings through volunteer labor and supplies.

The organization achieves its mission with 170 collaborative community partnerships and a suite of synergistic programs. HandsOn leverages its core strengths of volunteer engagement, design and execution of high-impact community revitalization projects, and disaster response services to strengthen families and transform neighborhoods in the 7 parish metro area.

Collaborative partnerships are essential to revitalize public schools, create safe places to play, gain access to healthy foods, clean and green our environment, and provide essential disaster management services to vulnerable populations.

We believe in human dignity and relate to the human condition. We believe our community partners - those closest to the problem - know the best solutions. We listen first. We act second to raise financial resources to address the issue. Third we recruit and manage volunteers at high-impact service projects to meet the needs.

Our model is unique. It's a force-multiplier that links human, financial, and material resources to create resident-based solutions. It advances self-sufficient, citizen-driven community revitalization.

Our aim is to put ourselves out of business. We envision a socially just community with happy, healthy, prosperous people. We won't stop until this is achieved. Our hands are outstretched to yours. We welcome your help and invite you to join our community!
