Help senior adults in the Leander area continue to live in their own homes. Volunteer drivers provide rides to their senior neighbors to doctor's appointments, grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. For many senior adults that don't drive, FIA-Drive a Senior Northwest is the only way for them to have access to their medical care and to run personal errands, and their only connection to the community. An easy to use online scheduling system allows volunteers to choose drives that fit their schedule, over 750 rides per month to chooose from!
