Welcome to Nauset Neighbors
We’re so glad you are interested in becoming a volunteer. You will find that joining and volunteering are both easy.
What we do
As an all-volunteer organization, we are committed to ensuring that the work we do is meaningful. Our volunteers make a difference in the lives of our members by providing Cape wide transportation, handyman services – including installing air conditioners, hanging pictures, moving deck furniture and the like, friendly visits, and computer help. As volunteers we are helping our neighbors, seniors in our communities, to remain at home. At the same time, we are creating connections and friendships with these people. Many of our volunteers look eagerly for their friends on the easy online self-sign up. Our members, who come from all walks of life, are anxious to share their stories and are extremely grateful, both for the assistance they receive and the time they are able to spend with the volunteers.
How it works
As a Nauset Neighbors volunteer, your schedule is in your hands. Our Volunteer Self Sign-Up enables you to peruse the outstanding requests and choose the ones that fit best with your schedule. There is no expectation that you will volunteer at a certain time each week or that you will provide a fixed number of services each year. Your time is your own and we appreciate whatever you can do to support our members.
