About

Volunteer Van Drivers Needed For Southern Washington and Dakota Counties


Phoenix seeks volunteers in the southern Washington county or Dakota county area who could drive a Phoenix wheelchair van and would enjoy providing assistance to cheerful and energetic women and men.

Phoenix has experienced challenges with transportation due to limited driver-qualified staff, limited funds, and rising energy costs.

How can you help as a volunteer?

  • We need drivers to take two young women from their house in Newport to their day program in Mendota Heights Monday-Friday (about 8 miles one way). While hours are flexible, a driver usually takes them at 8:30 am and picks them up at 2:30 pm.
  • We need drivers to take one young woman to swimming in Stillwater, with a staff to accompany the individual the hours would be from 9am-1pm on Saturdays.
  • Volunteers who could drive at least twice a week (or twice a month for church) would be a significant help, but any offer of driving assistance will be considered.
