Did you know that one of the most prevalent issues facing seniors today is social isolation? When people start to age and are no longer able to drive, their ability to build community and experiences becomes much harder. As seniors are at a heightened risk of illness, especially now, they need safe rides to essential errands like doctors appointments or grocery store trips.

This volunteer opportunity involves driving Seniors to essential errands in Southwest Portland in your own vehicle.

In the past, locations have included the Art Museum, The Oregon Historical Society, the Zoo, and more. Volunteer drivers will be trained in conjunction with Ride Connection. This is a driving opportunity, so locations will depend on trip destinations. Schedule is flexible. Could be any day of the week in the morning or afternoon, but rarely in the evening.

Through Neighborhood House's Senior Transportation Services, we promote active and healthy lifestyles for seniors and assist them to live independently, offering services to enhance life socially, physically, and intellectually, with an emphasis on promoting choice and dignity. By volunteering as a driver, you help promote a healthy and social lifestyle for the seniors in our community who need it most.

Requirements:
*PLEASE NOTE: As of October 18, 2021, In compliance with the Multnomah County mandate, Neighborhood House requires all in-person volunteers to be fully vaccinated and have submitted proof of vaccination to humanresources@nhpdx.org.
