About

Make Friendly Phone Calls To Our Homebound Neighbors

Do you enjoy talking on the phone? Some of our neighbors in the community are unable to leave their homes because of health concerns and do not receive visitors often. With one phone call, a volunteer can brighten someone's day with a cheerful conversation and listening ear. If you enjoy talking on the phone and lifting people's spirits, this is the opportunity for you.

Way to Help

  • Caller - call our neighbors to check-in and have a short friendly conversation.

Time Commitment

  • Volunteer for a minimum of one 2 hour shift each week.
  • Shifts include:
    • Monday - Sunday: mornings
    • Volunteers may choose to make phone calls from home or from the Neighbors’ office.
    • An ongoing commitment is preferred; however, short term volunteers are also welcome.

Impact

  • Make a positive impact in your community with a team of dedicated volunteers and staff.
  • Utilize and strengthen your interpersonal and communication skills, and form meaningful connections with people.
  • Each year, more than 4,500 friendly check-in phone calls to homebound neighbors are provided by our volunteers.

At Neighbors, all donations and volunteer service directly supports the local community.
