One thousand four hundred thirteen people benefitted from Neighbor to Neighbor services in 2017, saving over $400,000 in medical expenses. The group rents out medical equipment for free to those in need, offers companion programs for homebound people, and hosts a monthly support group for cancer survivors and patients. Ann Bennett, the Executive Director of Neighbor to Neighbor says these programs are available for everyone.
Bennett adds that in 2017, 94 people volunteered a total of 2,873 hours for the program. Those wishing to use these services or volunteer can call or visit the Sturgeon Bay location for further information.
