Help Steer an Older Adult in the Right Direction with JFCS’ SilverWheels
Be part of JFCS’ Silver Wheels Volunteer Program and provide easy, accessible, and affordable transportation for older adults.
Choose Who, Where, and When You Drive. Volunteering is Easy!
“Compared with those who still drive, older non-drivers make 15% fewer trips to the doctor, 59% fewer shopping trips and visits to restaurants, and 65% fewer trips for social, family, and religious activities.” -American Public Transportation Association
Many vibrant older adults can no longer drive and therefore need help getting to Non-emergency medical appointments, the grocery store, banks, pharmacies, visiting friends and loved ones in hospitals and nursing homes, social activities, and much more…
JFCS is dedicated to meeting the changing needs of older adults. Silver Wheels is much more than just a ride—it’s independence, community connection, mobility, and dignity.
JFCS is currently looking for drivers to be a part of this innovative new program designed to help older adults maintain an active and independent lifestyle.
Help an older adult reconnect with these important activities. VOLUNTEER TODAY.
