Help A Homebound Adult “Neighbor”
Thanks to hundreds of volunteers across the Valley, Duet is able to bring help and hope to homebound adults facing challenges related to aging or other health issues. It takes as little as a couple hours a month to make a true difference in the life of a homebound adult, affectionately referred to as “neighbor.”
We match volunteers with neighbors within close proximity of each other.
It’s so easy to find someone you can help!
Our interactive Services Map shows our waiting list of homebound adults who need caring volunteers – just like you. Each symbol represents an actual person who is waiting to get groceries, friendly visiting, or assistance with paperwork, respite, or computer training.
Remember, you must be a registered volunteer with us to be matched with someone.
Our highest demand for volunteer services is to provide grocery shopping and transportation to medical appointments.
(Note: transportation to medical appointments is not represented on the interactive map)

To become a Duet volunteer, you must be able to qualify for a Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance. If you are under 18, you may volunteer but you must be under the supervision of an adult with a Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance. Fingerprinting is done at a Fieldprint location. Information and instructions will be provided at orientation. If you already have a Level 1 clearance card please bring the card with you.
If you are volunteering to transport a homebound neighbor, you must be over 18 with a valid driver’s license and car insurance. Many of our volunteers work full-time jobs – so most services are flexible enough to be done in the evening or on weekends, around a volunteer’s schedule.
