Assist Seniors to their appointments

Save to Favorites


Thriving Downtown is a program of Project High Hopes, a 501(c)3 operating foundation. We provide transportation and assistance to Senior Citizens in downtown San Diego (zip codes 92101 and 92103). Thriving Downtown has been operating since 2013 and has aided more than 500 clients.

We need volunteers to assist with our growing client list. Most of our clients need transportation to and from appointments, but we also assist with shopping, pet care and connections to other community services. Learn more about Thriving Downtown by visiting .

All of our services are free of charge to our clients. We are recruiting volunteers to join us.

We hope you can help!
