Being a volunteer driver is an excellent opportunity to learn more about your community by connecting to the people within it. Our volunteer drivers use their own vehicles to pick up clients, keep them company throughout their appointments, assist them with simple errands, and even attend social events. The majority of our wonderful clients are senior citizens who have lost the ability to drive due to age, disability, or chronic medical conditions. The hours are very flexible and volunteers can sign up for requested rides when they have time - we just ask that our volunteers pick up at least four hours a month. All of us at Wheels of Hope know that our volunteers are the bedrock of our organization and we love to show our appreciation for all their efforts through fun events that bring us together to socialize, have fun, and form a strong team.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to bring hope to our clients by providing transportation, compassion, and companionship to those who would otherwise be denied access to our community.

Description

Wheels of Hope - Athens is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in December 2018 that provides arm-in-arm, door-through-door transportation services for the visually impaired, disabled, and elderly who have lost the ability to drive. However, we are more than just a transportation service as we seek to alleviate the isolation these members of our community experience due to their limited mobility. This is why we offer our services for a wide range of needs-medical, social, business-and provide assistance every step of the way. Wherever our clients need to go, we help them get there. Our vision is to contribute to the formation of inclusive, vibrant communities wherein no one is excluded or isolated due to their lack of mobility.
