Make a difference in the life of an older neighbor in Somerville or Cambridge by enabling them to continue to live independently -- become a bill payer 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 they can live within his/her means.

This is a great opportunity for those who enjoy helping older adults and have 2-4 hours per month to make home visits. The flexible scheduling is great for those with daytime commitments.

Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services requires staff and volunteers to be vaccinated against COVID-19, and to have received a booster if eligible.

If you’d like to find another Aging Services Access Point (like us) outside of Cambridge and Somerville, here’s an online tool: https://www.massmmp.org/asap-search/

By the way, we love volunteers with language skills! We're currently seeking a Portuguese speaker and a volunteer who converses in sign language.
