NeighborGood is a 501c3 non-profit organization that connects chronically ill and disabled individuals with neighbors for friendly visits or help with home tasks and errands. NeighborGood is based in Boston, MA.
WHO WE ARE
Founded by Harvard students, the NeighborGood team cares deeply and personally about building community and ensuring that chronically ill and/or disabled people do not suffer from isolation or lack of care. We also aim to make the experience of volunteering local, convenient, and meaningful.
How It Works
You sign up to give or get help on this website. We run a background check. After this, a member of our team will contact you to conduct a brief (~10 minute) Skype or phone conversation. Then, based on your location and availability, we’ll match you with someone in your neighborhood. We strive to make matches that require our volunteers to commute no more than 15 minutes.
After your match, we’ll contact you to share brief feedback that we use to make our service even better. Once you’ve completed this, you can sign up to give or get help again, anytime you’d like! We make one-time matches, so you can sign up again and connect with someone different — but you can also request to be matched with the same person again.
