Mission Statement

FISH volunteers provide rides to Tompkins County residents in need of medical and health related services that are within Tompkins County.

Description

FISH is in need of more volunteers! There is a growing demand for our services, due to the expanding range of medical services offered in Tompkins County, the aging of our population, and the economic issues of many people in the county.

How does FISH work? When a client needs a ride, they phone an answering service at (211 or 1-877-211-8667) and provide the necessary information. FISH has a schedule of monthly telephoners and drivers. On their appointed day, the telephoner checks with the answering service, and then contacts the scheduled driver. Drivers then contact the client to confirm times and make pick-up arrangements. Most drivers volunteer for 2-3 days during the month, and many are on the "substitute list". The driver will drive the client to the appointment and either wait for them to finish or return to pick them up at an agreed upon time.
