Interfaith Volunteers, a community non-profit with 37 years of serving the senior community, seeks public-spirited individuals who can volunteer to drive twice a month to bring healthy older adults to their medical appointments. Our service area covers all of New Haven County except for the Valley, and as our driver, you choose when, where and whom you drive. We provide excellent training and volunteer insurance coverage to keep you and your passengers safe. This is a wonderful opportunity for someone who is looking to have a practical impact on the health of our community, and to meet some very nice people too!
