Neighbor Connect is a functional connection of one neighbor’s skill to another neighbor’s need through databasing and categorizing the services volunteers can offer our community.
Today when people are struggling, they often turn to impersonal bureaucratic systems for help. Not that long ago, neighbors were the first to respond to need in their communities. We believe it should be like that again. It's why we created Neighbor Connect.
If you would like to use your skills and gifts, please join us in meeting the needs and blessing those in the Joplin community and the surrounding areas. We will contact you periodically when someone comes to us with a need that fits your abilities and schedule.
Manley, an elderly man in Joplin, is seeking assistance with light house cleaning on a monthly basis. He has vision problems and is unable to do some of the necessary chores around the house. If you would like to help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 417.623.6030 ext 121.
Stephen, a disabled Joplin resident, has no family in state. He needs to have a medical procedure done, and can't make the appointment until he has someone to transport him, and sit with him upon arrival at home. He is 2 years overdue with the appointment. If you would like to help Stephen, please contact, email@example.com or 417.623.6030 ext. 121.
William, a disabled veteran, has a dead tree that needs to be cut down before it damages property. William is unable to do the work himself due to complications from a previous surgery. If you would like to get a group together to help William, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 417.623.6030 ext. 121.
