The City of Bowie has many residents who have lived here 30, 40 and even 50 or more years. As these residents age-in-place, maintenance on their homes has become more challenging and sometimes creates code compliance and/or safety issues. During COVID-19, the focus will be limited to essential needs only - grocery shopping and pharmacy pickup requests.
Bowie also has many able-bodied retirees, civic organization members, and young people who are looking for ways to give back to their community.
The Community Services Department facilitates a program to match these two groups. We call the program “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.” This program is designed to bridge the gap between elderly (65+) and disabled residents and adults and organizations looking for ways to reach out and help someone in need. This is strictly a volunteer program. More information is included in the application forms.
