Mission

UR Community Cares ("UCC") provides an innovative, intergenerational roadmap to connect local Volunteers with age-qualified adults in need of at-home assistance. Our secure online platform helps support Community Members as they age in place. Our services fill in the gaps of traditional home care by mobilizing residents to connect with each other. Town by town, we link people who can help to those who need help.

What We Do

We help fill in the gaps of traditional at-home care services by mobilizing residents to care about and connect with each other. Our goal is to link people who can help to those who need help - whether it's for one hour per week or month or year - because UR COMMUNITY CARES. How to participate. Using our secure website, interested Volunteers and Community Members each create an online profile and upload an ID-type photo (to allow one another to be recognized upon arrival for the in-home visit). When a Community Member submits a request for a Community Deed, local registered Volunteers are notified by email/text then sign into their account to view and accept or decline it. Volunteers age 15-17 must have parental consent and visit supervision. (We do not provide any licensed work. Participants must agree to terms and conditions, privacy policy, user policy and procedure.)
