VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Neighbors Helping Neighbors is the goal and the name of a new program that was launched by the United Way of the Wabash Valley this week.

The program is designed to help homeowners who have small “fix-it” projects they need help with and will match homeowners with volunteers who have the skills and time to get the job done.

The program is starting in Vigo County with plans to expand to other neighborhoods in the United Way’s 6 county service area.

Officials said there’s been great interest so far.

“It’s going great. We’ve already had 2,000 views on social media. Several homeowners have already submitted projects and several people have already signed up to volunteer, so it’s going really good,” said Schelia Romanelly, Program Coordinator of Wabash Valley Neighbors Helping Neighbors.

Homeowners and those interested in volunteering can learn more about the program on the Wabash Valley Neighbors Helping Neighbors webpage.
