Nauset Neighbors help seniors remain independent and stay safely in their home and community as long as possible by providing volunteer assistance with certain challenges of daily living.

Description:
Nauset Neighbors is an all-volunteer, non-profit, membership organization currently serving senior residents of Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham and Wellfleet.

We help members live independently, safely, and comfortably for as long as possible in their own home and community by enlisting the aid of volunteers and providing “one-call-does-it-all” assistance for certain tasks of daily living. This includes transportation for medical appointments, shopping, and social and cultural events. We provide help such as light home maintenance (handyman chores), support for computers and other electronic devices that can frustrate seniors, friendly visits and referrals to vetted vendors.

History:
Nauset Neighbors has been delivering services to a growing membership since February 2011. We have been growing rapidly as the need is great. However, the number of people we can help is limited by the number of volunteers who can help them.

Nauset Neighbors was conceived as a long term project of the Nauset Newcomers Volunteer Corps in 2009. We are based on the "Beacon Hill Village" model but are a all-volunteer organization. We incorporated as a non-profit, charitable corporation in the spring of 2010 and have received tax-exempt status. We are a part of the Village-to-Village Network and actively share ideas and experiences with other similar organizations.

We are currently actively recruiting volunteers (and members) and are offering services to seniors at an ever expanding rate.
