About

It's so easy to get to the grocery store when we want to go. But what if you are an older adult and don't drive anymore? Life can get pretty challenging. You can help these older adults - whether it is once a month or once a week. Interfaith South Shore Regional has more than 900 clients in southeast Milwaukee County who need rides to the grocery store once a week, twice a month or even once a month. We have 240 volunteers helping them. You can be the 241st volunteer. If this is something that would interest you, we'd set you up with one of these amazing older adults. The beauty of our program is that you can help as much or as little as you'd like. We'd find you an older adult whose needs fits with your availabilty. Most of our clients have family - it's just that family can't do everything. Interfaith steps in to fill those gaps.
