INTERFAITH VOLUNTEER CARE GIVERS OF GREATER NEW HAVEN INC

Image_201910010539

Help our seniors obtain critical medical care by providing the "missing link" to appointments: a safe, caring and reliable ride. Many of our older friends can no longer drive themselves to the doctor, and IVCG is there to help. We are the ONLY provider of a free, door through door ride in our area, and the need is ongoing and outstanding.

If you drive with us, you'll be trained and insured. We can reimburse for gas expenses, but the smiles and gratitude of our wonderful clients are free.

IVCG drivers pick "their" rides from an online data-base of available opportunities. You drive where, when and how often you wish. We've been serving our community since 1984 so please consider joining our dedicated and caring team.
