Our volunteers make a difference in the lives of our members by providing Cape-wide transportation, handyman services, friendly visits, and computer help.

Older persons can find using computers and smart phones challenging, but a little help by answering questions can make such a difference.
Some tasks around home are difficult to do by oneself or as one ages. Help with changing lightbulbs, installing a storm window or screen, or watering flowers when it is very dry are the kind of services that help.
