Helping Neighbors Program

With the rising prevalence of Coronavirus (COVID 19) in the region, many of us are self-quarantining. This creates challenges for many seniors and other self-quarantined individuals who still need access to groceries, medications, and other services or supplies. To help address these concerns, Bay Aging offers our Helping Neighbors program to link those interested in volunteering with our neighbors in need of assistance.

If you are interested in helping your neighbors stay fed and have access to much needed services/supplies during this crisis, or if you are quarantined/home-bound and need assistance, please fill out the Volunteer or Request for Assistance forms  and we will connect volunteers with those in need. Please note, this service is available to ANY AGE, not just seniors.
