“Neighbors Who Care always wants to be a good neighbor, and in these times, we’re limited. That’s why we are working with a few community partners to share useful, vital information,” Sheryl Keeme, executive director, said. “There is not much we can do about changing the current situation, but we can make good use of down time to prepare, learn, and make possible adjustments.”

About the organization: Neighbors Who Care is a nonprofit organization founded in 1994. Its mission is to assist the homebound, disabled, and/or frail elderly in the communities of Sun Lakes and South Chandler, which have the third highest population of elderly adults statewide but lack sufficient wraparound human services programs to address the population’s needs, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. Its operational goal is to recruit, train, and manage community volunteers to provide quality, non-medical assistive services to enrolled clients via a “neighbor helping neighbor” approach, which has helped our clients, on average, remain in their homes for an additional four years.
