Umbrella is the easiest way to care for your home


Umbrella is a neighbors-helping-neighbors service. Tell Umbrella what you need done and get a vetted, skilled person from your community to help, on your schedule for a flat, affordable rate.


How Umbrella works

1. Become a Member of Umbrella

Join Umbrella and gain access to a network of triple-vetted Umbrella Neighbors.

2. Make a Request 

Call, text or email Umbrella what you need done.

3. Get Matched

Umbrella sends a triple-vetted Neighbor for a flat, affordable rate.

For larger jobs that Neighbors can't do - like a roof repair - Umbrella can help you find a qualified contractor, as part of your membership benefit.

I enjoy helping people, and being able to do that through Umbrella is satisfying.
— Faith G., Umbrella Neighbor

"Alexander was extremely polite and very very knowledgeable.  He was easy going and hard working. I could NEVER have imagined this whole process from beginning to end would go so smoothly and Alexander is a true credit to Umbrella!!!" - Lorraine P., NY


"I absolutely love Umbrella and it has made a big difference in my living environment.  I have Parkinson's so getting on a ladder is tricky for me. I had track lights that needed new bulbs, paint peeling from the ceiling and a desk that needed repairs. Umbrella sent a wonderful person to help me paint." - Karen V., NY


"This service is a blessing for all us seniors. I'm so glad I found them. The work staff are amazing. It’s so nice to have these fantastic neighbors. It's nice to get these minor chores taken off my to do list. Thanks Umbrella for helping us seniors 60+." - Barbara T., NY
