austin NORTH CENTRAL
Enriching Lives. That’s what Drive a Senior North Central is all about. The greater Austin area has one of the fastest growing populations of adults in the U.S. aged 65 and over and many of those older adults no longer drive. With your help, we provide free rides to seniors in North Central Austin and enable them to continue to live in their own homes as long as they desire and are able to safely.
We drive seniors to their medical and wellness appointments, grocery stores, the post-office and other everyday errands you and I take for granted.
These commitments and activities are vital for their well-being and allow them to live more independent lives.
