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! 


 Request Help                                    

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.

Neighbor Brigade has been a great asset to our community. As Human Services Director, I have been able to refer residents to Neighbor Brigade in their times of need. I've had the opportunity to collaborate with this wonderful organization on a recent food drive benefiting the Caldwell Food Pantry. During the worst of the pandemic, Neighbor Brigade's volunteers safely delivered hundreds of bags of groceries to residents who did not feel safe being out in public spaces. Since the West Essex chapter of Neighbor Brigade was founded in 2017, they have assisted residents in times of crisis with much-needed rides to medical appointments and physical therapy treatments. And knowing that all Neighbor Brigade volunteers have to complete a background check, I feel comfortable referring residents who are in need of help. Our community is truly fortunate to have such a wonderful network of volunteers standing by to take care of their neighbors!
