It’s a wonderful experience to help someone in need. Do you want to volunteer in a nearby location at a flexible, convenient time for you? We’ll match you with a neighbor who would like your help or company.

To begin the matching process, complete the brief Volunteer Sign-Up below and e-mail or mail us your notarized CORI Acknowledgement Form, allowing us to run a CORI background check. Once we’ve cleared your background check, we’ll reach out to to set up your first volunteer match!

Note: We apologize for the inconvenience, but Massachusetts state law mandates that the CORI Acknowledgement Form be notarized in order for us to process it. Please return the notarized CORI Acknowledgement Form to us by e-mail at OR by mail at NeighborGood, Inc., 125 Western Avenue, Boston, MA 02163. If you e-mail us, please make sure the notary’s seal is fully visible in your scan of the form. Our FAQs page has more information on where you can find a notary.
