Neighbors Helping Neighbors

This program locates needed projects and organizes volunteers to provide essential services to the homes of those who are less fortunate. The services include roof repairs, wheelchair ramps, decks, painting and other repairs.

Our organization brings together church groups from all over the New England area and plans service activities for them to participate in for a full week. The program arranges for all supplies and provides oversight for every project. The skill level of the group determines the type of project they are assigned.

Work groups pay all their expenses and plan to pay for all or part of the building materials needed.

We accept projects from the Columbia Falls/Jonesport to Eastport Area.

My mother-in-law is in need of a new roof on her house. Her husband who was a Korean War Veteran passed away Nov. 2016. She has been diagnosed with dementia.

To receive an application for roofing assistance, please reply with the contact information for your mother-in-law.

Bonnie Foss,
NHN needs your contact information, e.g. telephone number and/or street address in order to make contact about a ramp.

I need a wheelchair ramp, I am a double amp and just got home from the hospital. I would really appreciate any help I could get. Thank you.

Do you build onto people homes or no. My place is small and old. I live in a 2 bedroom trailer with four people in it. Kids have their room.

NHN does not build additions to existing structures. We repair structures that are at risk or putting their inhabitants at risk.
