Looking for a New Year’s Resolution you can keep? YCAN is looking for participants and volunteers!

Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors (YCAN) has three new programs! Programs are for Yarmouth residents only, and are designed to maintain independence at home and connect with the community.

  • The Handy Helper Program offers a volunteer that can assist with light household maintenance duties such as replacing light bulbs, raking leaves, cleaning windows, light painting, organizing, gardening, etc.  No jobs requiring licensure (i.e. plumber, electrician).
  • The Friendly Visitor Program offers a volunteer who will visit Yarmouth residents at their home regularly to provide companionship and friendship.
  • The Phone Pal Program offers a volunteer who will regularly call for a friendly chat.
  • A volunteer orientation will be January 16, 2020 (snow date January 17, 2020). Registration Required.

For more information, please contact the Yarmouth Community Resource Specialist at (207) 835-9866 or
