Volunteering for Neighbor Ride

As a Driver or Ride Coordinator you have the opportunity to enhance the quality of life for Howard County seniors who choose to "age in place" by providing reliable and affordable transportation for them. The rewards of helping seniors overcome isolation and maintain connections to their community are invaluable.  Flexible daytime, evening and weekend volunteer driving opportunities are available.  You choose the rides that fit your work or personal schedule and are convenient to your home, office or daily routines.  No set schedule is required.  Parents may bring their children along on the rides for a wonderful inter-generational experience.  Please read our volunteer testimonials and watch the video below.
