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.

HandsOn Greater Phoenix is an affiliate of HandsOn Network, an innovative alliance of volunteer organizations working to build communities
