Nurture UR Neighborhood

UR Community Cares (UCC) is a secure online resource that connects volunteers with community members who are age 70 and older or age 18+ if the person has a physical injury or disability. UCC is up-to-date and compliant with the CDC’s COVID-19 protocols. It’s free for residents or groups to enroll online, complete a background check, and then schedule assistance for household tasks/errands, yard work and companionship visits (currently via remote/distant contact). Services include (but are not limited to) shopping and drop-off of food and other essentials including medical supplies, pet walking, taking out the trash, yard clean-up and anything else that provides peace of mind in difficult times. Once enrollment is done, “Community Deeds” can be scheduled quickly online, completed within a day or a few days at most, and repeated as needed (weekly, monthly or intermittently). UCC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that is 100% volunteer-based and donation-funded; town governments and local organizations are welcome to partially cover costs of directly supporting your residents.
