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.

Testimonials and Thanks
Meet Robert— a client with CPC that is able to access his medical appointments because of the volunteer drivers at Community Partners in Caring.
Our client, Sandra, is pictured with volunteer, Mike, who helps transport Sandra to medical appointments. Our volunteers help our clients access basic needs, like medical care.
Meet Mary! Mary is a retired business owner who has been a client with Community Partners in Caring for the past five years. Mary is very thankful for our organization because she doesn't need as much advance notice as some of the other ride services, and some were too expensive. Mary has been going to get her nails done at a local Nail Salon for many years, and Community Partners in Caring has enabled her to continue with these services. Our organization has helped her to maintain her health without worrying about how she will get there.
