Volunteer Drivers for Seniors

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Faith in Action of Solano



Homebound seniors in your community are in need of rides to grocery stores and much-needed medical appointments. Providing even one ride a week would be a great help. :)

Transport seniors to medical or social service appointments, life enhancement activities, and/or errands(bookstore, movie, hair salon). Transport can be door-through door (1:1 for seniors needing an escort into their medical appointments) or curb-to-curb (escort not needed).

Volunteers provide transport in most cases utilizing their own vehicles; an agency vehicle is available in the Vacaville/Fairfield area for those who do not wish to use their own vehicle. Volunteer drivers provide up to 4 hours of service 1x a week, in their city. 6-hour orientation is required. Volunteers must agree to a background check.

Agency volunteers are needed to pick up essential food items or medicines for our homebound seniors. The need for this assistance is increasing.

Masks available if needed. Tips on how to keep yourself and our seniors safe and healthy are provided.
