Bill Paying Assistance

Make a difference in the life of an older neighbor in Somerville or Cambridge by enabling a senior to continue to live independently -- become a bill payer or representative payee volunteer!

Assist one of our clients by making sure the bills are paid on time. This volunteer position is primarily responsible for helping a client organize and pay bills, balance the check book, and develop a household budget so the senior can live within his/her means.

This is a great opportunity for those who enjoy helping elders and have 2-4 hours per month. The flexible scheduling is great for those with daytime commitments.  

Time: The two to four hours a month can be scheduled based on your availability. We're looking for volunteers who plan to stay with the program for at least a year.

COVID-19 safety: Most volunteering is over the phone, but sometimes home visits are necessary. If so, we'll ask you to follow a COVID-19 protocol.
