Volunteer Transportation Opportunities
You can help aging adults maintain their health and independence by becoming a volunteer driver. Volunteer drivers use their own vehicles to take older adults to essential medical, dental, vision, or other healthcare appointments. We need your help so we may continue to meet the growing demands for transportation service. You can make a crucial difference in the lives of older adults.
This volunteer opportunity is extremely flexible! We work with your schedule, allowing volunteers to pick the days, times, frequency, and areas they wish to drive. Transportation is one of the top challenges for people as they age. Our Volunteer Transportation program is perfect for those seeking meaningful, fulfilling opportunities, while maintaining an independent schedule.
