About

Imagine your parent living alone and they no longer drive. They can't afford a taxi, and a bus is too difficult to get on and off and there's no one to talk to. Won't you be a warm and friendly companion to them? We are looking for volunteers for our senior transportation program in the Boca Raton and Delray Beach areas. Our volunteers transport seniors to medical appointments, grocery stores, and other appointments. The clients might use a cane or walker, but no wheelchairs or physical transferring. You can volunteer any weekday you'd like... mornings or afternoons. All appointments are scheduled in advance and based on your availability. Drivers are reimbursed their mileage from the clients home to the appointment and back. No tips are to be accepted, however, the baked good the clients make as a gesture of their apprciation for your generosity may be enjoyed! We do ask that volunteers have a well working, clean car and carry a minimum of $100,000/300,000 car insurance policy. JFS also carries liability insurance for volunteers, so anything above and beyond the volunteers coverage would be covered by JFS. Level 2 background screening will also be performed.
