The Caring Network supplements the Minister’s pastoral work by reaching out to church members and friends in times of illness, loss, or transition. With the help of a generous network of volunteers, we coordinate visits, meals, errands, and sending caring cards to those who are housebound, hospitalized, in nursing homes, or generally in need of support. The Caring Network works closely with the Pastoral Listeners as needs arise. We’re here for you.

If you are sick or injured or in need of help, or if you know of someone who is, or if you would like to volunteer, please let the Caring Network (caring@uuharvard.org) or an individual member know.
