Umbrella helps seniors stay in their homes by matching them with community members (often recent retirees themselves) who can help with everyday tasks and chores. In addition to helping older adults with practical needs, Umbrella strengthens community connections by matching seniors with neighbors who are looking to give back.

We match you with seniors to do tasks like:

Heavy lifting: moving furniture or boxes, rotating mattresses
Furniture assembly
Small fixes: Replace light bulbs or batteries, hang curtains and window shades, tighten doorknobs, installing grab bars
Beautification: hanging photos and shelving
Technology help: device set-up & help (e.g. Alexa, tablet, phone), tutoring
Seasonal: holiday decorating, rotating clothing
Why Umbrella?

Here is what current Neighbors say about working with Umbrella:

"I've been very happy to meet with everybody. I really like doing this. I've gotten to meet a lot of people - essentially my neighbors, people in my community. I like the idea of helping people that otherwise might not be able to do things on their own." - Brad Cohen

"I see the value in Umbrella. You want to stay in your home but you need to maintain your home. Little things happen that could become a pain in the neck to take care of. As you get older, friends who help you - they're no longer there. Your husband - he's no longer there. And simple things become big things. On the other end, people who have free time and are fairly handy- they enjoy this kind of work. It's a win-win." - Sandy Murray
