About

Wider Horizons is seeking friendly drivers to help our members get to appointments, events, classes and get-togethers to keep their lives vibrant. Members pay any tolls and parking fees. Drivers choose rides that work with their schedules. No heavy lifting or bearing of weight. Drivers also enjoy great staff support, the chance to get to know our awesome members, and probably make new friends.

Wider Horizons members believe in building support networks so they can age in their own homes as long as they wish. They live independent lives by tapping into the give-and-take of strong communities. As we age, certain tasks become more difficult and can slow our neighborhood involvement. A little help from a willing volunteer can make the difference between full engagement and unintended isolation.

We are a virtual village of members living in their own homes in Central Seattle.

Of course we will conduct background checks and provide an orientation where all questions can be answered.
