“I must tell you, I think Home Ports is a wonderful organization and see such a need. Much of my respect for what you all are doing has, I believe, to do with dignity. Dignity of aging, striving to remain independent for a few more years. How sad to see people age and with that the loss of their independence, increasing dependent on those who are “too busy”, and the feeling they are becoming a burden. Your organization helps to delay that a few more years. Congratulations and thanks to all the volunteers at HomePorts.” Sincerely, Wayne Benjamin, MD

“On a December weekend, my sump pump died, causing my cellar to flood. The vetted service provider referred by HomePorts came promptly, cleaned up, and installed a new pump, for a reasonable price. The HomePorts members and volunteers I’ve met are a congenial, caring, community I am glad to be a part of.” Anne Charles, Founding Member

I don’t know where I would be without the help from HomePorts
During the many months I was recovering from a bad auto accident, I could not work in my gardens. HomePorts recommended several good people they had carefully vetted. The person I selected was knowledgeable, responsible and affordable. He literally saved my gardens, and is back again this year although I can now work along side. Sandra J., Member
“I wanted to thank you for referring that contractor. He did a good job with the ramp that he built at my parent’s home. He was also good to work with. Thank you for your help. It took the hassle out of finding a contractor on our own. My parents and sister told me that it was a pleasure meeting you and your colleague at the home evaluation. They found the visit helpful. We are looking forward to utilizing more of your services in the future.” Daughter of a Member
“I am thrilled to have HomePorts here. I don’t know what I would do without it.” Margaret Robinson, Chestertown, riding home from the beauty parlor with a HomePorts volunteer
