Northwoods Partners is always seeking friendly, caring volunteers to help with serving our community in these very important areas:

  • Friendly Visits – We coordinate volunteer visits for area residents who might be homebound or alone and want or  need contact with the greater community.
  • Transportation– We coordinate rides for meetings, errands and social events. Local and long distance rides are arranged for medical appointments. And we are always looking for new volunteer drivers!
  • Exercise Buddy Program – Volunteers meet with people weekly in their homes to help increase their strength, flexibility, and balance. Exercises are customized for each individual.
  • Caregiver Relief – We coordinate volunteer help for the person who cares for a chronically ill home-bound loved one. This allows the caregiver time to attend to other tasks and provides contact for the home-bound person.
