Tips for People in Need of Help
- If you are located in the U.S. use the search by zip code option, and look for someone close to the location where help is needed. Try a search within ten miles and see who's there!
- In the search results, look at the icons next to the volunteer's name and see if the type of help offered corresponds to your needs.
- Get a feel for the Helpers before calling. Do you like their profile picture? Do you like what they wrote about themselves in their mini-biography? If so, give them a call!
- We screen our volunteers through a phone interview and identity check. We conduct background checks upon request. We recommend that you spend some time getting to know the helper over the phone before agreeing on meeting.
Never offer money to a helper, you might offend the person! It is also against the rules of the program to have any money exchange.
