Project Linkage: Drivers make a difference!

Older adults in our N and NE Portland community need short rides to get to or from appointments and social engagements.

With YOUR HELP older adults can continue to live in their homes and/or stay active in the community.
You can volunteer once a month or several times a week. It may only take 20 minutes, but it makes a huge difference. We provide the training and do all the coordinating - you just let us know when you are available, and we let you know who needs a ride and to where! You can use your car our one of our vehicles.

It's a FLEXIBLE, IMPORTANT and MEANINGFUL way to positively impact the life of someone in need of a vital ride.

Join our team of outstanding volunteers!

About Metropolitan Family Service

Location:

1010 SE Stark St, Portland, OR 97214, US

Mission Statement

Metropolitan Family Service helps people move beyond the limitations of poverty, inequality and social isolation. We serve children, families and older adults in the tri-county area. MFS is dedicated to building stronger communities by providing services, connecting people with resources, and offering meaningful and rewarding volunteer opportunities.

Description

Metropolitan Family Service (MFS) volunteers serve in various capacities, depending on their areas of interest and abilities. Volunteers participate in on-going opportunities in one of three focus areas: helping children succeed, strengthening families and their connections to the community, and helping older adults and persons with disabilities live independently. We create opportunities that bridge generations and inspire everyone to live their best life.
