Neighbors Care Alliance Programs

The Neighbors Care Alliance (NCA) is a network of neighborhood volunteer programs with a shared mission of helping older adults thrive safely in their homes for as long as possible. The programs serve specific geographic areas, and each is independently organized. Pima Council on Aging serves as the program administrator and provides tools to build infrastructure, volunteer training, opportunities for networking, access to comunity resources, and mileage reimbursement. Volunteers support older adults through a variety of services which can include, transportation to medical appointments and shopping, running errands, meal delivery, phone calls and visits, light house and yard work, and caregiver respite. Neighbors connecting to neighbors reduces the social isolation many older adults face while helping to meet everyday needs. The NCA welcomes all interested volunteers and neighborhood programs to the network. Through participation in the Neighbors Care Alliance your neighborhood program will build a vast network of resources and support, building a safety net for older adults.
