About

Neighbors Who Care is looking for friendly and compassionate people who would enjoy visiting their lonely neighbors. We pair each volunteer with an older adult who may be socially isolated and looking for a friendly visitor. As a volunteer, you will enjoy a variety of activities with your client, including assisting with grocery shopping, taking them to an appointment, conversation over a cup of coffee, playing board games, or enjoying ice cream while watching the boats sail by on the Charles.

Volunteers are asked to serve 3-5 hours per month with a minimum commitment of 6 months.
