We are a local, volunteer-based, non-profit organization founded to empower members of our community to continue living in our homes, where we want to be as we age. Our mission is to provide services to promote the independence of older individuals in our community by creating a network with resources to keep us confident at home and connected to community.

Staying active – physically, mentally and socially.
Connecting with others and feeling part of community. Putting talents and skills to good use.

Provide transportation --doctor’s appointments, grocery store.

In-home assistance –minor chores, occasional meals.

Companionship—phone checks, visits, walking partner.

Gardening advice and help –watering during absences.

Light home maintenance –turn mattresses, change smoke alarm batteries.

When do YSNN volunteers give their time?

Volunteer schedules are very personal – it’s up to each volunteer when they are available.

How it works?

Volunteers give their preferred days and times of day they are available when filling out their application.
Then they go through orientation and training. 

The YSNN Program Manager or call volunteer will put in a member request for services
and volunteers will be contacted by email or phone.
The volunteer will respond to the request
saying that they are available or they are NOT available.
