Faith in Action of Solano

Our homebound seniors still need to get places during these topsy-turvy times. If driving is not a possibility, perhaps you would consider running errands or doing grocery shopping. 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. Masks available if needed. Tips on how to keep yourself and our seniors safe and healthy provided.
