Eligibility and Cost:

Any senior and/or disabled Bloomfield or Glen Ridge resident is eligible for our services FREE of charge. Our goal has always been to provide volunteers at no cost to you.

Programs Include:

Friendly Visitor
Our volunteers provide companionship and weekly visits to homebound seniors or disabled Bloomfield and Glen Ridge residents who are at risk of becoming isolated.

Small Home Repairs
Volunteers can provide help with minor household chores on an as needed basis.

Food Assistance
Delivery For those who qualify for food assistance through the Human Needs Food Pantry, a volunteer will deliver groceries weekly.

Neighbor to Neighbor Network provides services to seniors, people with disabilities, and low-income individuals/families in Bloomfield and Glen Ridge Townships. NTNN aims to provide support to people in need through non-traditional programs. Our dedicated staff can connect you or someone you love to volunteers who can provide companionship, grocery shopping, help with small errands/chores, or weekly food deliveries for those who qualify by the Human Needs Food Pantry.
We are always looking to expand and help Bloomfield and Glen Ridge citizens anyway we can. If you are in need of something, don't hesitate to call us.

About NTNN's Volunteers:

NTNN’s volunteers range in age from high school students to seniors. They are all screened by the NTNN staff. Our volunteers offer friendship, an understanding ear, and support to individuals who have limited access to outside activities. All volunteers are overseen by NTNN’s Volunteer Coordinator. NTNN staff meets with each client to assess his or her needs, then selects a volunteer who most closely fit those needs.

Transportation

Many of our clients frequently ask us about the availability of transportation.  We do not guarantee that NTNN can provide transportation for any of our clients.  Our volunteers are permitted to give rides at their own discretion.  If the volunteer we match you with feels comfortable providing transportation, then you may ask them for rides, but it is solely up to the volunteer.  We suggest using NTNN volunteers as a last line of defense for transportation.  NTNN will gladly provide you with a list of local agencies whose main focus is transportation upon request.
