How to Find a Vendor

If a volunteer cannot resolve your problem: Neighborhood Falmouth staff will provide you with some names of vendors who have been recommended by NF staff, board members, volunteers, and members. These include handymen, house cleaners, painters, plumbers, electricians, tax preparers, and many others. Members arrange payment for these professional services directly with the vendors.

Neighborhood Falmouth staff and board members are in the process of compiling a list of vendors. You can call the NF office for some advice about finding an appropriate vendor. One of the best ways to find someone to do work in your home is to ask a family member or trusted friend for a recommendation.
