Formed in the Spring of 2011, a group of neighbors gathered people from the 209 corridor (south of Kingston, NY) to discuss how they might help one another remain independent, strengthen their communities, and stay in their own homes. Our group relies on the volunteers--neighbor helping neighbor. We have nurses, business people, artists, homemakers, computer specialists, lawyers, educators--people with all kinds of skills. We all need help at one time or another, and many people are hesitant to ask. To address this issue, our members are asked to indicate the ways in which they can help. Then a List Manager, available on our special phone, responds to calls for help by looking through the list to match the need with a volunteer. When you join, your name will be placed on the list to call, and of course, you will be able to ask for help. Twice a week - on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m. - we gather at The Blackboard Bistro at the Town Hall on Lucas Avenue for coffee and a chat for at least an hour. We celebrate birthdays of the month. Members bring books to share or link up for trips or other activities. It's a neighborly way to exchange information and support.
