The Issue: Lack of Access to Public Transportation

In Wake County, public transportation is limited, with schedules that make transfers strenuous for individuals who are elderly or have other physical limitations. This makes it difficult for senior citizens and adults with disabilities to maintain their independence, since lack of transportation decreases their access to medical care, social activities, and shopping for their basic needs.

The Campaign: Transporting for Adults with Disabilities

If this Grassroots campaign raises $300, then The Center for Volunteer Caregiving can provide six seniors or adults with disabilities with round-trip transportation to a doctor's appointment or errand. Each additional $50 raised be used to provide a round trip to an appointment or errand for another person.

In past years, The Center for Volunteer Caregiving received outside funding to cover the costs of providing transportation for seniors and adults with disabilities, but that funding was recently cut. Volunteers provide escorted, door-to-door transportation to doctor's offices or to get groceries or medicine, offer assistance to individuals at the destination, and then return clients to their homes. Last year, volunteers drove nearly 19,000 miles to help seniors and adults with disabilities keep living independently.

The Center for Volunteer Caregiving

The Center for Volunteer Caregiving helps Wake County seniors and adults with disabilities maintain their independence and quality of life by providing services such as transportation and home visits. Through its Caregiver Support Program, the center also provides a temporary respite for full-time caregivers who are supporting a loved one with dementia or other disabling conditions. Caregivers can take much-needed time for themselves as trained volunteers offer quality companionship to the family member in need.
