Valley Neighbors is a community non-profit organization offering volunteer services and programs to residents age 60 and over who wish to continue living independent, engaged lives in their homes and communities.  Our goal is for residents be able to continue living in their current homes, thanks to a little neighborly help.

Formed by a group of Whately residents in 2018, VN now also serves residents of Deerfield and Sunderland.  Valley Neighbors is a member of the Village-to-Village Network that includes over 300 like-minded community organizations around the country.

Valley Neighbors is now offering services to members who have completed the enrollment process.  Membership is free, thanks to continued support from individuals and organizations in our communities. Donations are always appreciated. Volunteers, please contact us and let us know what tasks you would like to help neighbors with.
