Why Volunteer with Amherst Neighbors

Due to COVID-19 and state guidelines, in person volunteer services are not being offered at this time. If you are interested in assisting virtually with telephone support and/or technical assistance, please let us know.


What if your talents, skills and passions could make a difference in the life of an older adult by helping them stay independent in their home? Our volunteers will one day contribute their time to help members with simple tasks that have become more time-consuming or challenging, while others will contribute to teams that maintain our operations. Anyone 18 or over from any community can apply to volunteer with Amherst Neighbors.

Some of the benefits volunteers experience include:
- Staying active – physically, mentally and socially
- Connecting with others and feeling part of community
- Putting talents, skills and capacities to good use
- Paying it forward – knowing that someday each of us will also need support

The first step to becoming a volunteer is to download an application and return the completed form to P.O. Box 3428, Amherst, MA 01004.
