Help Drive a Senior in Need

As the county in the state with the largest population, the number of those needing help continues to rise. In Milwaukee County, an average of 200 seniors contact us every month for rides. For medical, financial, or safety reasons, they can’t drive themselves anymore – but the need for transportation remains and volunteer drivers can be hard to find.

Milwaukee County faces some unique challenges in trying to help our seniors be as independent as possible so they can remain in their homes, while offering the help and respect they deserve.

21.6% of Milwaukee County residents live below the poverty level – many of whom are seniors that need your help.
