description
Colonia Verde Neighbor to Neighbor is part of The Neighbors Care Alliance (NCA). NCA is a network of neighborhood volunteer programs with a shared mission of helping older adults thrive safely in their homes for as long as possible. The programs serve specific geographic areas; each is independently organized. Pima Council on Aging serves as the program administrator and provides tools to build infrastructure, volunteer training, opportunities for networking and access to community resources, and mileage reimbursement. Volunteers support older adults through various services, including transportation to medical appointments and shopping, running errands, meal delivery, phone calls and visits, lighthouse and yard work, and caregiver respite. Neighbors connecting to neighbors reduces the social isolation many older adults face while helping to meet everyday needs.

The NCA welcomes all interested volunteers and neighborhood programs to the network. Through participation in the Alliance, your neighborhood program will build a vast network of resources and support building a safety net for older adults.

Supporting the 169-home community northeast of Sabino Canyon Road and Tanque Verde Road.
