How can you impact your community? You can change someone's life. You can make a difference in ways that impact health and emotional well-being. You can befriend the lonely and an often overlooked segment of our society.
What would you do if you could no longer drive? Our clients do not drive and rely on others to be able to leave their homes and go to appointments, get groceries, and do other errands.
Volunteer drivers and clients follow the most recent CDC and local guidelines for Covid.
Volunteer drivers help individuals 60 and older to remain independent and age in their own homes. Be a volunteer driver and help your senior neighbors get to doctor appointments, grocery stores, libraries, beauty salons, etc. Volunteers also needed to complete handyman tasks, help with light yard work, and make phone calls and visits to those more lonely. Providing transportation also helps relieve loneliness and isolation. Be a driver and a friend!
Schedule around your time using our web-based platform. Family-friendly...bring your children or grandchildren; flexible to work with your schedule. Volunteers determine where and how far they want to drive.
Our clients live in Round Rock, Hutto, Pflugerville, East Austin, and Manor.
