Looking to make an immediate difference in someone’s life?
Want a flexible schedule? Like to drive?

Well, we have an incredible volunteer opportunity for you! Feonix Mobility - Rising seeks volunteer drivers to help individuals get to any where they need to go including medical appointments, nutritional support, vaccinations, family gatherings, religious events and more!

Our volunteers give rides to individuals who do not have reliable and affordable transportation.

Our goal is to improve the lives of cherished community members whose needs are critical, but whose transportation is limited. We are building a volunteer force to ensure that seniors, families, veterans, and people living with disabilities do not suffer unnecessarily due to transportation issues.

We are looking for volunteers who can answer yes to the following questions:

Does flexible scheduling appeal to you?

Are you a motivated, community-focused individual?

Does helping others make you feel good?

Do you have a car, SUV, or truck that you can drive?

If you believe that serving folks in need in your community is a worthy mission, then this opportunity is for you!

As a Volunteer Driver, the opportunity requirements are pretty straight-forward. You must have a current driver’s license, personal vehicle, and insurance. Also, you must pass a background check and have a smartphone.

Volunteers have the opportunity to drive as little or as much as you would like, based upon your schedule.

"I cannot do all the good that the world needs. But the world needs all the good that I can do." Jana Stanfield

COVID-19 considerations:

All of our Volunteer Drivers go through online infectious disease training based on CDC guidelines on how to safely transport passengers and sanitize their vehicles. Volunteers will also receive a stipend to purchase or will be provided with PPE.

Mission Statement

Feonix - Mobility Rising creates mobility solution for the health and well-being of every person in every community

Description

Right now, in your community, there are people who have no way to get to the doctor, the pharmacy, the grocery store, or work.

Here at Feonix - Mobility Rising, we help fill in the gaps in the social service ecosystem for individuals living with transportation insecurity. We’ve been collaborating with communities around the United States since 2018 to solve some of the biggest mobility challenges in our communities.

We recruit and train volunteers and work with local transportation providers to provide free or low-cost rides to people in need. We also provide online disability training (ADAPT) for transportation professionals to help make all transportation accessible to people with mobility challenges.
