Tempe Neighbors offers the chance for you to get involved helping older adults in our community. We appreciate your efforts and encourage you to try different activities to see what suits you best. Recent studies show that social connectedness--sharing parts of our lives with one another--lowers stress and boosts immunity. Health is wealth, and it is contagious!

What types of volunteer positions are available with TNHN?
We offer a variety of opportunities and our volunteers may serve in more than one role. We ask our volunteers to commit to a minimum of two hours per month, although they are welcome to serve more. Some of our opportunities include:
Transportation. Driving and/or accompanying members to medical appointments, grocery shopping, prescription pick-up, errands and social events.
Friendly Visits or Phone Calls.  Providing friendly visits to say hello and check in on members who may be isolated or homebound.
Gardening & Yard Care. Providing yard clean up, sweeping, mowing, weeding, edging, gardening and lawn care. Done in groups, this is our only opportunity that does not require a Verified Volunteer background check.
Light Home Maintenance. Replacing light bulbs, air filters, smoke alarm and hearing aid batteries, minor home and plumbing repairs.
Technology Assistance. Providing guidance with mobile phones,  televisions, internet, email & social media usage, general computer assistance, troubleshooting and installations.
Light pet care. Taking pet(s) for a walk or play time, feeding.
