Faith in Action
It’s Much More Than Simply a Ride
Our Senior Transportation Program helps people to remain independent in their own homes and communities where they are most comfortable. Many live alone and our regular visits provide an important check that everything is all right. If there are concerns, we notify a person’s emergency contacts and/or emergency services.
Designed to serve the elderly who have no transportation, temporary or long term, the program links volunteers to elderly individuals who may need a ride to the doctor, dentist, pharmacy, lab, shopping, etc. The volunteers, 55 years and older, drive clients only when it fits in with their schedules, and the Transportation Coordinator always tries to match the volunteer with a client who lives in the same ZIP code.
Independence, security, friendship…It all adds up to dignity.
