Join Our Team of Volunteers!
Volunteers help out our neighbors in many different ways - delivering a comforting meal (homemade or pick something up pre-made!), dog walks, rides to appointments, help with errands, one time light housework or lawn care, etc. Our volunteers can sign up for activities that are based on their individual schedule, interest and availability, help out when you can. If you would like to become a Neighbor Brigade volunteer fill out our volunteer application/questionnaire here!
If you, your family or someone you know is experiencing a temporary crisis due to an illness, surgery, cancer, accident, fire, death or other life event, our network of volunteers may be able to provide temporary, non-monetary assistance with some of your day-to-day needs. Some of the services volunteers have provided in the past include meal deliver, dog walks, rides to doctor's appointments, help with errands, friendly visits, and light household needs. To request services, fill out our Client Application here or call 1-855-241-4357. Neighbor Brigade should contact you within 24 hours.

The Billerica Neighbor Brigade Chapter has been very active for the last 5 plus years. We provide help in times of accident, illness or tragedy. As an example of our work, our network of volunteers regularly delivers meals and provides rides to medical appointments. We work closely with the food pantry to provide desserts at Thanksgiving, and have provided help at Christmas time to disadvantaged families in town.
The best part about our group is you helping out you when you can with what you can.
Our volunteers are our eyes and ears in the community and we would love to have you onboard helping, sharing our mission and letting us know about those who may need our help.
When you reach out and help some one in need you get back truly more than you give!!!
Neighbor Brigade establishes community-specific networks of volunteers that can be mobilized to help residents facing sudden crisis manage day-to-day tasks such as meal preparation, rides, and basic household chores. Our chapter is just one of 29 chapters helping their neighbors in crisis! To learn more about us and our other chapters, please visit our home page here.

Cathy has lived in Billerica her whole life and worked for the town for over 20 years. In addition to her work with the town, Cathy is connected to her community through the public school system and membership at St Theresa Parish. Cathy originally got involved with Neighbor Brigade because its mission so deeply connected with her own experience. Cathy lost her husband in an accident when her children were still young. Cathy was so appreciative of the outpouring of support she received from the Billerica community that she wanted to pay forward her gratitude by establishing a local Neighbor Brigade Chapter. ‘I can never repay each and every person who helped my family and myself so when I heard about the Neighbor Brigade I knew I had to get involved. This is my way to pay it forward and to also make my corner of the world just a little bit nicer.’
