Mountain Neighbors Helping Neighbors is a group of volunteers who provide free help to residents of the Santa Cruz mountains, especially our seniors. We coordinate occasional or short-term services such as stacking wood, visiting, giving rides into town, delivering meals, light temporary house-keeping, form-filling, trash cleanup, repairs, clearing storm drains, light clearing of defensible space, and assistance in using the internet.
MNHN is offering Well-Being Calls. If you or someone you know would like someone to call them daily (or on certain days) to check that everything is ok, contact MNHN.
All assistance is subject to the availability of volunteers with the appropriate skills.
This is a great opportunity for local students to fulfill their community service requirements.
We also can help you find a paid helper. For example, we have a list of in-home health providers who work in the 95033 zip code area.
Contact MNHN95033@gmail.com or call 408 353 4565
to give or receive help from a neighbor
-- that's what neighbors are for! In the spirit of barn-raising, you can be both a giver and receiver of help.

Mark often spoke fondly of Mrs. Hughes, so I was deeply touched to learn, in the aftermath of 9/11, that she had single-handedly constructed the sweet memorial in our midst. A few days ago Mountain Neighbors Helping Neighbors refurbished the memorial, removing overgrowth and restoring the patriotic Red, White and Blue dedicatory sign lettering to its original easy-to-read yellow.
Heartfelt thanks to Pam Walatka of Redwood Estates and her generous, civic-minded friends of Mountain Neighbors Helping Neighbors.
