We are dedicated to our clients – they are why we do what we do, but we also cherish and celebrate our volunteers. Check out some stories from both sides!

“I feel that the help and interaction when diagnosed and had surgery saved my life!” – Mendon MA Client

“Thank you for doing this- it really meant a lot to me when I couldn’t move or walk and I had nobody here to help.” – Natick MA Client

“It does take a village and it’s nice to know the village is out there willing and wanting to help.” – Braintree MA Client

“I have seen the positive impacts of Neighbor Brigade through the volunteer opportunities that I signed up for. It’s great knowing that I have helped a family in need in a way that fits my unpredictable schedule.” – Maynard MA volunteer

“Neighbor Brigade has been truly a blessing for us at a very challenging and difficult time! Dealing with serious injuries from an accident which impacted my mobility, while simultaneously receiving radiation treatments for cancer, has been beyond overwhelming. The Neighbor Brigade provided me with rides to appointments (as I was unable to drive) and several meals (that were ready when I returned home from my treatments) all from caring volunteers who were happy to assist me. Thank you all so much!” – Natick MA Client

β€œI enjoy the feeling of helping someone in need. I do not need recognition; the process is its own reward. The small effort [of walking the dog of a blind client] makes a big difference for her and her dog. I have been retired for four years. Neighbor Brigade fits my schedule very well.” – West Essex NJ volunteer

“My family and I are forever grateful to the volunteers for offering me rides daily and supporting and encouraging me to look forward for a beautiful future .” – Needham MA Client
