For the safety our volunteers and applicants during the pandemic, BLRR has implemented the following policy related to home visits.  Effective 6/22/20 and until further notice, home visits will be conducted in one of two ways.

  • Virtual Home Visit – done via Facetime, Zoom, or another app that will allow the volunteer and applicant(s) to see each other and will also allow the applicant to show the volunteer their home/yard/etc.
  • In-Person Home Visit – done at the applicant’s home, but OUTSIDE in the yard or on the porch or deck with everyone wearing face masks and practicing social distancing. We will ask you to share a few “inside” photos of your home to give your volunteer an idea of the layout of your home.

Note that we have a limited number of volunteers able to do each type of home visit.  Please answer the following questions so we can determine if we can accommodate you at this time.
