JFCS Rides Transportation Service
Part of keeping seniors healthy and independent is making sure that they are able to get out and around their communities. JFCS Rides Program, administered by our Seniors At Home division, helps us achieve this goal.
Comprised of volunteer drivers, JFCS vans, and taxi vouchers, JFCS RIDES provides seniors, as well as people with disabilities, transportation to medical and dental appointments, the grocery store, the pharmacy, and other critical errands.
“Rides is a lifeline,” says one JFCS client who can no longer drive due to failing eyesight. “If it weren’t for my volunteer driver, I don’t know how I would be able to get food and other essential items.”
