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! http://bttr.im/59sdp.
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: http://bttr.im/ppptl or call 1-855-241-4357. Neighbor Brigade should contact you within 24 hours.
Community Angel Sponsor - Bedford MA Neighbor Brigade
As Owner and Principal of Bernstein Development, I am proud to have such a vibrant organization in our community. We are honored to be the Community Angel Sponsor for the Bedford Neighbor Brigade chapter.
I wholeheartedly agree with founder, Pam Washek’s, belief that we all share a human need for community and our need to care for and be cared by one another. Pam believed helping was imperative not only for those who need the assistance, but for the benefit of the volunteers as well.
No matter your reasons for visiting this page, if you’re looking to to become a volunteer or if you’re looking for some support yourself or for a neighbor, I would like to welcome you to the Neighbor Brigade family.
Welcome to the Bedford chapter of Neighbor Brigade! Our chapter was formed in March 2010. Whether you are seeking assistance or looking to provide help to another, you’ve come to the right place. Our volunteer chapter leaders donate time to coordinate the needs of families in crisis with the volunteers who want to help.
