About

When seniors move down to this area after working hard their whole life, they are looking forward to enjoying a "fun-in-the-sun" retirement, a couple of rounds of golf each month, dining out, and more...BUT many never foresee themselves being diagnosed with a chronic illness or suffering from an accident which leaves them temporarily or permanently disabled. Many of our neighbors live alone. Some have neighbors and family they can call on, but many times this is not sustainable.

Our neighbors are just like you and me, they just can't drive any more. Their desire is to stay in the comfort and safety of their home for as long as possible, but without transportation, accessing the food and health care they need can be a challenge... and for some...life threatening.

Public transit in this area cannot meet many of the needs of our homebound and disabled community at this time. Private transportation costs are high and unsustainable over long distances or spread out over multiple trips a month. No senior should have to choose between paying for a transport to the doctor and buying their groceries.

Help us be there for them by volunteering just 2 rides a month...so that we can be there for YOU if you ever need us.

Our amazing volunteers give rides, which work with their schedule, to qualifying disabled but handi-CAPABLE homebound adults who have no other way to get to the grocery store, medical appointments, local church, or the pharmacy.

Our home office is in the "heart" of Myrtle Beach, but our services are offered in local neighborhoods throughout Horry and Georgetown counties, based on the area in which our volunteers live. You choose what trips you want to take, where you want to go, and how far you’re willing to drive!

We carry supplemental medical, automobile, and volunteer liability insurance on all volunteers at no cost to you. Also, we have an easy-to-use online scheduling tool where you can login and signup for rides at your convenience.
