Here is what current Neighbors say about working with 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 Cohen, Umbrella Neighbor

"I see the value in Umbrella. You want to stay in your home but you need to maintain your home. Little things happen that could become a pain in the neck to take care of. 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, people who have free time and are fairly handy- they enjoy this kind of work. It's a win-win." - Sandy Murray, Umbrella Neighbor
