Give someone a lift, Be a volunteer driver!
Welcome to the Ride Together Program! We are excited to have you on board. If you are looking for a rewarding way to help out the community this is for you.
According to studies lack of reliable transportation is the single biggest factor to keeping people in poverty. Without a way to get around families are forced to rely on small corner stores for food and supplies. These stores are often more expensive and offer less healthy food than a standard grocery. Adults are also limited in their employment choices, which can make increasing their income impossible.
The Ride Together Program aims to match volunteer drivers up with families in our program to provide rides for everyday basic needs like, going to the grocery, getting to and from work, medical appointments, job interviews. Through our app, built by Code the Dream, volunteers will be matched up with riders according to the volunteer's individual schedule.
