I must tell you, I think Home Ports is a wondereful 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 Home Ports. Sincerely, Wayne Benjamin, MD

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
Met some nice men! (wish I were younger!)
As a longtime member of HomePorts I have had occasion to call for assistance a number of times and have never been disappointed. On two calls I did not expect to get positive response, but did immediately. The first was “How do I locate a Geriatric Case Manager?” The reply, “We just vetted one last week, here is her phone number.” That was three years ago, and she is still assisting us, in spite of moving to S.C. The second was for a lawn and garden person who could not only drive our J.D. tractor, but also could service and maintain the equipment throughout the year. That was 2 years ago and I completely depend on his judgment. HomePorts is definitely helping me stay in our home. Jack Matthews, Chestertown
The driver was on time, very sociable, very good driver and didn’t mind that the screening took more time than it was supposed to be.
