VOLUNTEER TO HELP AN
Opportunities for every skill set!
No matter what your passion is, there is a chance to put your skills to good use at Neighbors in Action! Volunteering is fun, flexible, and easy. Join our team of volunteers that help older neighbors stay living in their own home for longer!
WE NEED YOU!
Drivers connect older neighbors to the community by providing transportation to medical appointments, grocery shopping, and events. Volunteers must be over 18 and drive their own insured vehicle. The commitment is flexible and you may drive as often or as little as you would like.
Volunteers are matched one-on-one with an older neighbor to serve as a friendly visitor. Companionship visits include conversation, going on walks, doing puzzles, playing games, or simply spending time with an individual. This volunteer experience is flexible and can be scheduled weekly, bi-weekly, or sporadically. Often, time spent with a companionship volunteer is the highlight of an older neighbor's day!
ODD JOBS VOLUNTEER
We regularly receive requests for odd-jobs and help from older neighbors. Join our email list and help out as you are available/interested!
Volunteers adopt an older neighbor's sidewalk or driveway during the winter months. Volunteers clear snow as needed. It's the neighborly thing to do! All equipment (shovel/snowblower) is provided.

Volunteers help with minor home repairs and chores for older neighbors such as hanging photos, fixing drawers, changing light bulbs, etc. Volunteers are able to choose the tasks they feel comfortable with and arrange the work to fit with their schedules.
Volunteers adopt an older neighbor's lawn during the mowing season. You can volunteer individually or rotate with friends or family. Mowing is completed as needed (usually weekly) and can be done on your schedule! All equipment is provided.
