How it works
Call or email Umbrella with any task and we’ll find a vetted Handy Neighbor to help for a flat $16/hour. We back every job booked via Umbrella and performed by a Handy Neighbor with our Happiness Pledge.
Umbrella is powered by its Handy Neighbors
The stars of the show are our gifted Handy Neighbors who choose to give back.
Umbrella Handy Neighbors are often recent retirees, or others who are interested in purposeful work. They’re former teachers, firefighters, artist, business people and other members of the community.
Tony is a retired facilities manager and weekend Shakespearean. He works on Umbrella in order to give back to his community and earn some extra income.
Sally raised three kids. Now that her kids are grown, she works on Umbrella as a meaningful way to fill her extra time.
