Neighbors helping neighbors

Neighbors helping neighbors graphic

Vibrant Village is a membership and volunteer-based program where neighbors come together to lend a helping hand and enrich each other’s lives. A nod to days when neighbors were as familiar as family, willing and able volunteers provide simple services for resident members with needs such as transportation, pet care, companionship, tech assistance and more. This low-cost network supports social connectivity, community, and independence.

How our model works

One

By streamlining the means to express need and to serve, purpose is lit within the community.

Two

Through use of a platform that seamlessly catalogs needs and skills, we make it easy to ask for help.

Three

Volunteers easily claim and perform simple, local services for neighbors in need.

Four

Once barriers are removed, we make being "neighborly" natural and attainable.

Testimonial

Ruth, Resident & Vibrant Village Participant

"I am so grateful for a comprehensive and inclusive system of neighbor helping neighbor. Whether needing assistance walking your dog or working through a computer issue — and a long list in between — Vibrant Village matches volunteer talent with needs. Easy to use! Just a click or phone call."

Asking for help is comfortable

Clicking or calling to request help is easy for resident members because they know volunteer neighbors are ready and willing in specific ways.

Helping neighbors is rewarding

Putting their favorite skills to helpful use is rewarding and fulfilling for volunteers. Connecting neighbors who help to neighbors in need is our favorite skill.
