Can you help us engage with our neighbors by making check-in phone calls? This is a critical need right now as many of us are feeling isolated, and we’ve learned that a warm call can make all the difference.

To learn more, please join us at our Volunteer Orientation. Whatever your interest, and however much time you have to give, there’s a volunteer opportunity for you at Northampton Neighbors.
