The support can be as simple as giving someone a phone call to make sure people are staying socially connected.
People in need of support can also register with the houses.
St Helens Neighbourhood House manager Patricia O'Duffy said it is important for people to stay connected in a time of crisis.

"We live in a rural and remote area and a lot of people might have moved here for a sea change," she said.
"A lot of people who access the house daily, the house will be their main social connection so if they are doing social distancing and they are not engaging in the regular programs, they obviously still need those connections.
"They need to not be so socially isolated, they can do that physical distancing but they need that social connection."
She said the people volunteering understand the importance of sticking to the social distancing guidelines.
Ms O'Duffy said the response of the community to the growing need has been inspiring.
"It's been overwhelming this response to social distance," she said.
"People are being so kind, it is very inspirational to be apart of this community to see how people have responded to those in need."
The Neighbourhood houses aren't the only people looking to spread kindness along the East Coast.
About two weeks ago Sandra Ashely started the 'Pay it Forward East Coast Tasmania' Facebook group.
Her goal was to connect people who needed help with those willing to provide it.
"Things like going shopping for them, being a phone buddy, dog sitting, dog walking and paying bills," she said.
"We are just such a beautiful community here in Tasmania, everyone wants to help each other."
