We are an innovative non-profit established in 2019 to provide a digital roadmap for every town in Connecticut. Community Members (age 70+ or age 18+ if physically disabled) are linked with local Volunteers (parental consent and supervision required if age 15-17). Community Deeds are offered in three categories: housework, yard work and companionship.
UR Community Cares is seeking to engage a Connecticut Hometown Hero in every town! We are searching for someone who is passionate about improving the quality of life in their community. The Hometown Hero will help identify both Community Members in need and Volunteers to help, all within their town. They will be instrumental in assisting our team with local fundraisers, and help those who may have difficulty navigating computers to enroll online on our website. Please help us revolutionize how UR town thinks about the future of those “aging in place.” Community members will be saying “Thank you for being a friend” to our Hometown Heroes. Requirements: 18 years of age or older with a valid driver's license.
We are hoping for an annual $1 contribution from all Connecticut residents. Please help empower UR Community by donating what you can; every $1 donation helps fund background checks, insurance, and technology costs. With no paid employees, we are 100% volunteer-based and 100% donation funded. We are collaborating with businesses and offer online sponsorship opportunities in various positions on our website. Geographic targeting is available by town or statewide visibility. Please inquire about pricing.Donate Now
