As the number of Americans aging in place continues to rise, so does the need to support volunteer driver programs that ensure older Americans have access to basic needs – medical attention, food, socialization… As the only agency of it’s kind in Santa Barbara County, we ask that you join us in our effort to help seniors, regardless of economic status, age in place with dignity
Additional staff will help with ride coordination and volunteer recruitment, but the continued increase in service requests can only be addressed through partnerships, collaborations, community involvement, more volunteers, and funding. How can you help?
Become a volunteer and invite friends to volunteer. Volunteers enjoy a flexible schedule, start and stop as their personal schedule permits, receive mileage reimbursement, can view requests for services from any electronic device, and because our staff coordinate all activities, their phone numbers remain private.
