Partnering the needs of some with the
willing hands of others.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors is a City of Excelsior Springs volunteer program that helps eligible residents maintain and remain in their home. Neighbors Helping Neighbors connects volunteers, volunteer groups, and organizations with eligible Excelsior Springs residents whose homes require maintenance or repair.

WHO DOES NHN HELP?

Eligible residents are owner/occupants of a home within Excelsior Springs city limits. They must have a physical limitation due to age (65 or older) OR disability; AND have a household income under $50,000 annually. Residents complete an application and send it to the Volunteer Coordinator at the City of Excelsior Springs. Priority is given to residents who have nobody else to help them. If you know of someone who may need help, please let them know about the program or contact us.

TYPE OF HELP NHN PROVIDES:

  • Trash removal
  • Yard maintenance
  • Snow removal
  • Lawn mowing
  • Exterior painting
  • Raking leaves
  • Trimming branches
  • Washing windows
  • Changing light bulbs
  • Changing smoke alarm batteries

  • Some city-issued codes violations

HOW DOES NHN WORK?

All of the work is completed by our amazing volunteers! Once an application is received and verified, a general description of the work and location is emailed to the volunteers. Typically, one person can complete outdoor requests, if small. If the request is an indoor one, at least two people are required to assist at the same time. All of the work is done voluntarily and therefore at no cost. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Laura Mize at 816-629-7011 or via email at neighorhoods@excelsiorsprings.gov.
