Mid-Cities Care Corps (MCCC) provides transportation for senior citizens to scheduled routine medical appointments and "quality of life" rides (grocery shopping, banking, etc.) within Northeast Tarrant County ( Euless, Bedford, Hurst, Haltom City, Grapevine, Southlake, Keller,Watagua, North Richland Hills and communities inbetween). Transportation is provided by caring volunteers who provide their vehicle, time, and gas to transport senior neighbors.
A typical volunteer drive includes picking up the cleint at their residence, driving the client to the appointment, staying with them the duration of the appoinment, and returning the client to their residence. A background check is completed on all volunteers. An individual with 3 hours a month to spare is considered a potential volunteer candidate for MCCC, the average time for a volunteer drive. Volunteers have the flexibility to accept or deline drive opportunities based upon their personal schedules.
MCCC does not income quality clients and never charges for services because we recognize that most of our clients are on limited income.
All volunteers must pass criminal background check and have a clean driving record.
The mission of Mid-Cities Care Corps (MCCC) is to preserve the independence of senior neighbors in Northeast Tarrant County.
We have a vision that with a little help, most senior citizens can maintain their independence and live in their own homes. We accompish this through three key program areas: Transportation, Helping Hands, and Social Outreach.Transportation provides rides for senior citizens to routine doctors appointments. A friendly volunteer picks them up, transports them, and waits with them during their appointment...just like a family member would. Helping Hands provide minor home repair, lawn and garden maintenance, and wheelchair ramps. Social Outreach includes monthly social events and a Phone a Friend program where we link seniors with common interests together. We find that our volunteers are just a blessed by their time spent with our clients and our clients are blessed by them! Come check us out!
