Drive a Senior – A Faith in Action Network
When older adults can no longer fully take care of themselves, both the seniors and their families are faced with many challenges. Drive a Senior realizes these challenges and works to ease them. Through direct interaction, Drive a Senior staff and volunteers recognize the individual needs of clients and offer assistance personalized to their needs and abilities.
Drive a Senior offers support services to senior adults in the Greater Austin Area who live at home, assisting them and their families in maintaining their independence, dignity and quality of life.

Whether it is a ride to the doctor or beauty shop, help with yard work, or a friendly visit, trained Drive a Senior volunteers provide services at no cost to seniors in need of assistance. Volunteers often provide more than a helping hand to clients. Many wonderful friendships have grown between clients and volunteers. It can be a very heart-warming experience for both.
Drive a Senior is a non-profit interfaith organization serving seniors which started in West Austin in 1985. Since then, it has grown into a collaboration of nine groups serving Austin and surrounding communities including Cedar Park, Elgin, Georgetown, Leander, Round Rock and Pflugerville. Our volunteers come from churches, synagogues and other places of worship, as well as the community at large.
We put faith into action by…
- Assisting seniors to live independently in their own homes
- Offering life enriching volunteer opportunities
