During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
The JET Express program offers rides to older adults who no longer drive. Volunteers donate their time and energy and provide a sense of dignity and independence into the lives of these older adults. JET Express is more than just a ride it is about fueling the sense of connection, independence, and mobility that defines aging well.
Volunteer drivers utilize their personal vehicles to provide rides for older adults. This safe and reliable transportation enables older adults to attend medical appointments, shopping needs, visits to a spouse in a nursing home, taking a class, attending religious services and more! Volunteers are able to provide safe and reliable transportation ensuring that these adults remain active, healthy, and connected to their community.Want to hear the difference that you are making?
