t's so easy to get to the doctor's office when we want and need 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. We have more than 900 clients in southeast Milwaukee County who need rides to medical appointments. We have 240 volunteers helping them. You can be the 241st volunteer. We call you a week before and ask if you can take a certain ride. If you can, great! If you can't, not a problem. We will call you again. You can volunteer as much or as little as you want. Most of our clients have family - it's just that family can't do everything. We step in to fill those gaps.
