Will you be my Neighbor?



Please note that for the time being, while we are very happy to hear from you and learn about your interests, services to our members won't be available until June 2019. Still, we strongly encourage you to please fill out the form below so that we can get you on the list. Member interviews (see below for details on how to become a member) will be conducted starting in March 2019.


We are excited that you are interested in becoming a member of WLLO Village. As we start this membership process, the most significant benefit of joining WLLO Village is that you will be connected to a new supportive group of neighbors in your own community.

WLLO Village will support you in addressing needs on an ongoing basis rather than waiting for a crisis when options may be more limited.

We define support in two ways: As hands-on services designed to help you manage your day-to-day activities and chores; and as frequent social activities that help you stay connected, meet old friends, and make new ones.

Therefore, you can choose between two kinds of memberships for engaging with your community.

Our Associate Membership

This membership is designed for individuals who are primarily interested in attending the social functions that WLLO is organizing. They have also access to the list of vetted vendors. Direct services are restricted to a small number per year.

 

Social connections and interactions are enriching everyone’s life. Some of these activities will be organized by WLLO, others by volunteers. Among other things, you can expect happy hours, book clubs, coffee meet-ups, movie and theater groups, craft parties, potluck dinners, picnics and opportunities to learn and attend lectures.



Our Full- Service Membership

This is the all-inclusive membership for individuals who want to receive direct services from volunteers in accordance with the membership agreement and have access to the list of vetted vendors. They are also invited to attend all social events.


Here is a list of some of the volunteer services you can expect from WLLO. We will discuss all our services with you in a meeting, as they change or are updated periodically.

  • Help at home
  • Occasional housekeeping
  • Occasional pet care
  • Paperwork management
  • Help with your technology
  • Light maintenance
  • Occasional light yard/garden work
  • Personal Support
  • Companionship visits
  • Check in phone calls
  • Transportation to medical appointments, other appointments and events, to run errands with you


Membership Fees and Services

Our membership fees are priced based on the kind of membership you pick, and whether it is for an individual or a household. You can either pay in one annual payment or in twelve monthly installments.



 


Becoming a Member


Like in any good relationship, it has to work for both sides. We have adopted guidelines that have proven to work in other Villages. Becoming a member is a deliberate process that consists of 4 steps.


Step 1: Complete a member questionnaire and send it to the WLLO office. You can download it here or request that one will be mailed to you by calling this number.


Step 2: A WLLO volunteer will come to your home to talk about what we can offer to you and learn what your needs are in more detail. This meeting is the most important element that we use to identify whether there is a fit.


Step 3: Sign the membership agreement and other relevant papers.


Step 4: Make the necessary arrangements to pay for your membership


We organize new member meetings on a regular basis to help ease new members into our community and help them meet like-minded individuals.
