Many of our members no longer drive, but still need to go places!
We need volunteers to provide medical transportation from member's homes to doctor's appointments and back, as well as non-medical transportation to other appointments, grocery shopping, and (once it is safe again) social events.
We value your comfort level and if you do not currently feel comfortable transporting members, we have many other opportunities available.
If you are comfortable, we ask that you wear a mask, wipe down your vehicle before and after, and social distance whenever possible for the duration of your volunteer service.
Village Connections' mission is to create a supportive community for older adults to age in place by helping them stay connected, active, and independent. To accomplish this we must promote the well-being of an ever-growing membership through a network of local volunteers and activities.
Village Connections is a non-profit organization serving members age 50 and over who live in several adjacent historic neighborhoods of Columbus, Ohio including German Village, Schumacher Place, The Brewery District, and much of Merion Village and Downtown. We strive to create a supportive community that allows our members to stay connected, active, and independent as they age while remaining in their homes and neighborhoods. We provide vetted volunteers, from the neighborhoods we serve, to assist members with rides to the doctor, grocery shopping, yard clean up, light home maintenance, etc., and provide a social outlet to avoid being isolated in their homes. We have monthly lunches, social events, and outings to help our members reengage and thrive in the villages they are such an important part of.
We'll work with your schedule.

Most of our regular volunteers volunteer around 1-2 times per month. Other volunteers participate in larger events (like raking leaves and snow shoveling) once or twice a year. You would share your availability and we would schedule accordingly.
