Tap into Bloomfield's greatest commodity. ITS PEOPLE.

With 1 hour each week (or every week), you can make a senior adult very happy by assisting them with their shopping. Many older adults who still live in their own homes are unable to get out to do their own shopping the way they used to. Your assistance, while simple, can truly make their day. Volunteers must complete an application with 3 references. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a consent form.

Mission Statement

Neighbor to Neighbor Network (NTNN), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization funded in part by Partners for Health, connects volunteers with Bloomfield and Glen Ridge residents in need of support not available through traditional programs.

Special emphasis is placed on assisting older adults and people with diabilities who may be homebound, isolated, and struggling to care for themselves. NTNN provides food assistance to low-income individuals and families.

Description

Neighbor to Neighbor Network (NTNN) serves as the Volunteer Arm of Bloomfield's Division of Human Services. NTNN collaborates with community groups, faith-based organizations, local citizens, and businesses to provide volunteer services to Bloomfield and Glen Ridge resdents in need.
