VillageRides is recruiting volunteer drivers to provide safe rides for seniors and adults with disabilities who can no longer drive themselves to non-COVID-19 related medical appointments, grocery store/pharmacy pick ups or other essential errands in their neighborhoods.

It’s so easy. When you volunteer to drive for one of VillageRides 16 participating community organizations you view and accept only ride requests from neighbors when they work for your schedule. Every ride helps.

Volunteer to drive today, and Give the Gift of a Lift!

JCA's VillageRides, through our village partnerships supports the following volunteer transportation programs in Montgomery County and Prince George's County, Maryland. We assist their efforts to recruit volunteer drivers. To volunteer, please contact us or your nearest organization directly. Thank you!
