About

OUR NEIGHBORS

Our neighbors are just like you and me, they just can't drive anymore due to age or disability. Just as we do, they desire is to stay in the comfort and safety of their home for as long as possible.

However, without transportation, accessing the food and health care they need can be a major challenge. No homebound adult should have to choose between paying for a transport to the doctor or buying groceries. Neither should they go hungry just because they cannot get to the grocery store.

THE PROBLEM

Homebound isolation due to a lack of transportation, personal connections, and many times a fixed income.

Public transit cannot meet many of the needs of our homebound and disabled. Private transportation costs are high and unaffordable when accounting for distance and multiple trips per month.

OUR NEED

We need more volunteers! Over 250 of 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.

However, because we pair up volunteers and neighbors based on where they live throughout the Grand Strand, we could use hundreds more! Our home office is in the "heart" of Myrtle Beach, but our services are offered in local neighborhoods throughout Horry and Georgetown counties.

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.

THE ORGANIZATION

Neighbor to Neighbor is an award-winning organization that has been recognized by the SCDOT as the "2015 TRANSIT PROVIDER OF THE YEAR IN HUMAN SERVICES", and by the SC Association of Nonprofit Organizations as the "2016 Nonprofit Excellence Award" recipients.
