Picture hearing about a concert at Esther Short Park that you really want to go to, or looking in your kitchen and seeing that a grocery shopping trip is needed, or a doctor’s appointment that you really need to get taken care of . . . now think about not having any way of getting yourself there. That is the reality for over 3.5 million people every year. They lack transportation. . .
Volunteers in Motion is a new program of the Human Services Council. Volunteers in Motion is recruiting volunteers who would like to give back to Clark County’s aging adults and others who need transportation to maintain their physical and emotional health and independence. Volunteers in Motion will screen and register passengers that need transportation to meet their basic needs and engage willing volunteers to assist them in getting where they need to go. These appointments might be a medical appointment, a shopping or nutrition trip, or some socialization like the library, a movie, a summer concert in the park, or other event.
A volunteer driver can either choose to use their own vehicle to provide rides or they can volunteer to drive a small group of people using the Human Services Council’s Community Access vans. Drivers using their own vehicle will be reimbursed mileage for these trips. All drivers need to be at least 21, have a current driver’s license, clean driving record, current insurance and be able to pass a background check. Drivers are provided thorough training and expenses for background check or other related requirements will be paid for by the Human Services Council. Even if you find time in your schedule to drive a few trips a week it would be greatly appreciated by Volunteers in Motion, the passengers and their families.
If being a driver isn’t an option for you right now, could you Give the Gift of a Lift? For $20 you could provide someone a much needed round trip that will allow them to maintain their health and independence.
