Description of project

Having a volunteer-a friendly and familiar face-is one quality that sets us apart from other organizations. The other quality is our services are available at no cost to the Seniors we help. A large part of that is due to our great volunteers. When a volunteer is not available, and with 33+ ride requests each week it happens, we cover the cost of Alternative Transport.

- $25 is the average cost each ride when a volunteer is not available.
- 531 rides were possible thanks to the Alternative Transport option in 2017.

Most often this alternative transport is us covering the cost of taxi cab ride. More affordable options are utilized when available. Since the majority of ride requests are for doctor's appointments, its crucial that our Seniors be able to make it. Most of them live at income level where paying for a taxi cab or ride-sharing service, is not possible.
