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!

I love volunteering here at Mid Cities Care Corp (MCCC)! I have had the pleasant opportunity to work directly with the seniors that need our assistance with routine medical transportation services to important Doctors appointments. I have assisted with calling and scheduling our volunteers to get seniors to their Doctors appointments and I want to tell you I hear time and again they are ever so grateful. One of the main goals at MCCC, a non-profit organization, is to provide our senior neighbors an option for independent living through high quality services and they are always looking for more caring volunteers. As a volunteer they ask that you share a little of your time, care and compassion with appreciative senior neighbors. An hour a day, week, month or more?flexibility is their motto. Join our family of volunteers and experience the heartwarming feeling of helping someone! You’ll be glad you did. I sure have!
This is a fantatic organization. I have been driving for MCCC for over 2 years as well as volunteering for minor handy man chores. The organization is non-profit and is completely dependent on volunteers as well as charitable contributions. The organization is proactive as it pertains to helping seniors have a safe home envoirnment. They have painted housed, cleaned up yards, performed minor home repairs and installed handicap ramps just to mention a few.
Driving seniors to Doctors is their main focus and their volunteers log thousands of miles each year giving a helping hand to those in need. I can not begin to express the rewarding feeling I receive when I help MCCC and the recepients of this help (the seniors of the community) are always so, so apprciative.
If you have a few hours a month I strongly recommend you giving them a call to volunteer. Words can not express the reward you will receive.
