Village Homes Match
(A project of Village in Action)
Village Homes Match wants to spread a message of hope and compassion by serving and loving our neighbors who are at risk of COVID-19.
At risk? Sign up to get assistance.
A healthy adult with low-risk factors? Sign up to be matched with an elder or immunocompromised member of our community who could use your help over the next several weeks.
How Village Homes Match Works
We are preparing for a potential community outbreak of COVID-19 by identifying healthy adult whose risk factors are low and are willing to be paired with someone with high risk factors. Once a match is made, you and your match can coordinate delivery of essential supplies such as food and prescriptions and you can create a check in schedule by phone or other electronic method.
We'll match you with a low-risk volunteer who lives in your community and wants to help you by getting groceries, picking up prescriptions, and checking in every couple of days.
We will match you with someone in your area as soon as a volunteer becomes available.
We care deeply about you and want you to remain healthy.
Village Homes is full of loving, compassionate and kind people. During this time of social distancing, many members of your community are going to need assistance getting critical supplies while refraining from being in large public spaces.
It's our hope to match those of you with someone in need as soon as an at-risk candidate applies for help. Thank you for taking care of your neighbors!
THE LEGAL STUFF
Please keep in mind that this initiative is being run by private citizens. We do not have the funds or the capacity to run background checks or screen participants beyond a friendly phone call. We are trusting that Village Homes neighbors will continue to be good, honest and kind to one another.
**By completing the sign up form to be matched you agree that you accept all risk and responsibility and further hold any facilitator associated with Village Homes Match harmless.
How You Can Help
Once a match is made, you and your COVID-19 Match will take complete ownership of the process. The idea behind Village Homes Match is to connect at-risk people to those who are at low risk for COVID-19 and are willing and able to help in this time of recommended social distancing. When you meet your match, what you do and how often you do it is completely up to you.
Some Recommended Ideas:
- Call every couple of days to check in
- Offer to pick up groceries or prescriptions
- Deliver a prepared meal from a restaurant
- Bring your match a book
- Be a 6'-distance walking companion
- Sew a face mask for someone in need
We take the privacy of your personal information very seriously and we will only use the data that you provide to match you with a Village Homes neighbor. Once we have made a match you will receive an email or a phone call with contact information for your helper. Should you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to send us an email:
