Escorted Transportation provides low-income, mobility challenged seniors, who are lacking family/social support and who have no other options with rides to essential medical appointments. Volunteer drivers pick up the senior, provide arm-in-arm transportation and then ensure they return home safe and sound… often providing emotional support along the way.
There is no fee to the senior for the service and volunteers are paid mileage for their trips.
The requests for this service are overwhelming and expansion of the program is desperately needed. Your support will allow for volunteer recruitment, screening, training and management, which would mean more clients could be served more often and that new clients in need can be added. It will also ensure those seniors who need it most receive the service in a timely manner.
