We match volunteers with neighbors within close proximity of each other. Once vetted and matched you can volunteer by:
Shopping “for” or “with” someone once per week.
Sort mail, bill paying, insurance forms, etc. once per week/month.
Minor home repairs, completed in one or two visits.
Escort someone to medical appointment, once per week.
One visit per week for about 1 hour. Or two to three phone calls per week, ten minute conversations.
Assist homebound seniors with use of technology. Smart phones, computers etc.
To help a homebound neighbor, a Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance is required. The cost of printing and obtaining a card is $73. The process is completed through DPS and Gemalto/Thales. After six months of active volunteering, Duet will refund you the cost of the card at your request. If you already have a Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance, simply provide a copy for our records. If you are under 18, you may volunteer under the supervision of an adult with a Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance.
