Unfortunately, due to health and safety concerns for both our volunteers and our clients, we are temporarily discontinuing our transportation services until further notice. The lending of mobility equipment and financial assistance will continue on a case by case basis. If you have a request, questions or concerns, or would like to discuss other options for transportation, please call and leave a message at the number above and we will get back to you. Please check back as the situation improves to see when transportation services resume. Thank you for your support and stay safe.
