About

Our seniors deserve to stay in their homes and engaged in the communities they love. Westchester Playa Village is making that happen.

WPV is not a retirement facility or caregiving agency. We are a non-profit community organization working out of an office to coordinate a network of local volunteers to assist our members with everyday life, with one of our many services being transportation.

Transportation is our number one service requested, given that many of our members can no longer drive. Getting out and about is a necessary and integral part of maintaining a healthy, happy life. These local trips often take less than 30 minutes and volunteers can choose to do just one-way if not both ways.

Daytime Drivers- Volunteers are needed throughout the week to drive members to/from medical appointments, social events, beauty shop/barber, the grocery store, and assist with other general errands.

Weekend Drivers - Volunteers are needed to drive members to/from religious services, the grocery store, and assist with other general errands.
