Volunteer Care Teams Of Rocky Hill is a network of trained volunteers helping frail neighbors live independently.

Purpose

Volunteer Care Teams of Rocky Hill assists chronically ill and frail citizens stay in their homes longer with peace of mind for their family members. Trained volunteers of all ages help their neighbors by providing transportation, chore services, yard work, home repair, respite and visiting at no cost regardless of age, income, race, or religion. It is a distinctive national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Town of Rocky Hill.

This program provides assistance to meet service needs not provided by government programs. This service is managed by a part-time Program Director, an inter-faith coalition of 5 churches, and town senior groups. Oversight is by the Town Human Services Department.
