So much for so little! Keeps seniors independent and mobile and provides a flexible volunteer opportunity creating immediate impact. A win-win for all! Taking folks to cultural and social events, religious services, volunteer jobs, managing healthcare and business appts., visiting friends and loved ones, or just getting a haircut or picking up a birthday gift allows seniors to have door to door service in a private vehicle at their preferred time. A viable transportation option with minimum infrastructure and staff. More than 250 volunteers are providing more than 1,000 trips each month!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Talked to passengers who value their independence whic is mainteained by quality, dependable sservice...AND the volunteers who so enjoy their passengers!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide staff hours to assist other communities create their own similar service.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & Worked with concerned residents to create this service and continue on the Bd. of Directors.
