Neighbors in Action Helps YOU Remain at Home!

Old and Young

Neighbors in Action provides assistance to older and disabled adults throughout 

Houston County, Minnesota. We help with tasks that are difficult for you to manage so that you can stay living in your own home longer.

Neighbors in Action provides help in two ways:
  • Volunteers (available in La Crescent and Caledonia) are matched to provide companionship, basic home tasks and transportation.
  • Care Partner Service - a paid staff person provides more in depth care to help provide peace of mind to both the person served and their family.

Hear From our Friends...



"Asking for help is the hard part for a lot of people, but I know you have volunteers that really enjoy helping. I never feel like I’m interrupting. The drivers are wonderful.  I’ve never had a volunteer who didn’t thank me for letting them help me.  I usually get a hug when they leave."

I want to thank you for all that you have done for my mother, Dorothy Brown.  All your help and the help of the volunteers were what helped her to stay in her own home as long as she did!"                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Rhonda Hanan


Thank you so much for seeing that my lawn got raked at such late notice.  I really appreciate it.  The team of friendly girls did such a super thorough job.  Also, than you for arranging all the rides for me. What a wonderful service and such kind volunteers.


                                                                             In Gratitude,

Thank you, thank you to all the special La Crescent Angels who give me rides to my appointments.  I could not do it without your help!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Arleen Michaels


I am writing this in support of the Neighbors in Action program.  As a physician providing care for patients in the community I cannot begin to express how important this organization and all its activities have been to the patient base here in LaCrescent.  The program provides excellent services that have a meaningful impact on the lives of our patients...
