Senior Services Solutions Plus is a nonprofit organization providing supportive medical transportation to residents of Fremont County who cannot drive themselves to medical appointments due to medical or financial reasons. Our goal is to ensure that our clients can remain independent and live in their homes for as long as possible by ensuring they meet their appointments.
Our Services: Our primary mission is to provide free transportation for Fremont County residents to their medical appointments and occasional shopping trips. All transportation depends on volunteer availability. We also maintain and coordinate medical schedules for our clients. We pro vide some minor home repairs, light painting services, and other minor home maintenance. We provide the labor, the client provides the materials. This service is provided on a limited basis.
We accomplish our mission through the kindness of our volunteer drivers, our Board of Directors, and our office staff. Our drivers include retired teachers, service members, single moms, laboratory directors, truck drivers, technical editors, and others from all walks of life.
In 2016 our drivers clocked a total of 3,900 volunteer driving hours and serviced 212 clients. We averaged 115 trips a month, making new friends all the while. We pride ourselves by saying that of our 20+ volunteers 12 have been with us more than 5 years and of those 6 have been with us 10 or more years. This speaks to our level of commitment and the level of satisfaction that comes with volunteering.
