Bob's fence blew down in a recent storm. He was not physically able to make the repairs and his fixed income made it impossible to hire a fence company. Then he heard about Neighbor Helping Neighbor (NHN), a new volunteer program available to seniors in the Town of Trophy Club and surrounding areas.
NHN is a collaborative effort serving 76262 - the Town of Trophy Club, Roanoke, Westlake and surrounding areas between Area Agency on Aging of North Central Texas and Tarrant Co., Meals on Wheels, Inc., of Tarrant County, Metroport Meals on Wheels, the Texas Ramp Project, Trophy Club Police and Fire Departments and local churches.
NHN serves adults over 60 who may require assistance in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. NHN serves to reduce the effects of senior isolation by facilitating service delivery, building sustainable network of volunteers and service providers and providing case management to those in need.
Whether it's a daily phone call, a personal visit, assistance with minor home repairs, household chores, or yard maintenance, volunteers are helping area seniors. NHN matches concerned, caring volunteers with the needs of local seniors. Along the way, friendships are forged and lives are changed. NHN also helps connect older adults with support services like Meals on Wheels or provide assistance in determining the senior's qualification for state or federal benefit programs.
