    Here is what current Sidepost Umbrella Neighbors say about working with Sidepost Umbrella: 

    “I’ve been very happy to meet with everybody. I really like doing this. I’ve gotten to meet a lot of people – essentially my neighbors, people in my community. I like the idea of helping people that otherwise might not be able to do things on their own.”

    — Brad C., Umbrella Neighbor

    “As you get older, friends who help you – they’re no longer there. Your husband – he’s no longer there. And simple things become big things. On the other end, you have people who have free time and are fairly handy- they enjoy this kind of work. It’s a win-win.”

    — Sandy M., Umbrella Neighbor
