All services are provided free of charge.

During the holidays, the Neighbor to Neighbor office and medical equipment facilities will be closed for a few days to allow for their volunteers to spend time with their loved ones. Neighbor to Neighbor will be closed on the weekends, as usual; in addition, the office will be closed Dec. 23 and the medical equipment programs and the office will be closed Dec. 26 for the Christmas holiday and on Jan. 2 for the New Year’s holiday. Neighbor to Neighbor requests that you plan ahead if you will be in need of medical equipment over the holidays.
