We Connect Volunteers With Community Members Who Request Help With Everyday Tasks.

What We Do

Our nonprofit aims to improve lives.
We believe volunteering can change communities.
The power of kindness is real.

We want to help people with their technology struggles and help them understand how to better use their tablet or smartphone.
We want people who are lonely and isolated to connect with volunteers to provide companionship.
We want those struggling on a fixed income to have assistance from volunteers at no charge.
We want people to be able to get to their healthcare appointments by having convenient and flexible one-on-one transportation with a volunteer.
We allow any town to connect its residents to improve people’s quality of life.
This novel approach allows us to cater to a broader range of needs in every community.

UR Community Cares innovative local model helps family caregivers, older adults, and adults with disabilities using volunteer nonmedical assistance to maintain independence in their own homes. So many older adults and adults with disabilities need help to attend non-emergency medical appointments and outpatient procedures. Volunteers provide nonmedical assistance - help around the house, transportation, companionship and friendly visitors, respite, errands, and yard work.

UR Community Cares, Inc.

UR Community Cares uses secure web-based technology to match local Volunteers with Community Members (age 70 and over or age 18 and over with a physical disability) who need free at-home support. Household chores, yard work and companionship visits are requested and pre-scheduled online, thus offering family caregivers a respite opportunity. Through intergenerational social connections (within a 15-mile radius), we help build stronger communities where residents can safely age in place and live more independently.

We are the roadmap to connect UR town:

  • Town Social Workers
  • High School, Higher Education
  • Hospital, Other Healthcare Services
  • Assisted Living Facilities
  • Housing Authority
  • Civic Groups & Associations
  • Community Center, Senior Center
  • Public Library
  • Business Sponsors
  • Restaurant Fundraisers
  • Donors

Become a Hometown Hero

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.
