The joys of caring for the well-being of others

What would you do if you could no longer drive?  How would you get to your doctor or dentist?  How would you get to the grocery store or post office? YOU can help fill this critical need for your senior neighbors by supporting Drive a Senior!

Every dollar you donate goes toward helping a senior to age in their home, receive healthcare, share a laugh with a volunteer, and feel the freedom a ride can offer. Consider volunteering and warming the heart of someone needing your smile.

Send us an email and we’ll get you on-board with our fabulous team of volunteers.


Serving seniors aged 65 or older living in the central corridor of Austin from 45th Street to SH 45 tollroad; west of I-35; east of Burnet Road and MoPac.

This includes Crestview, North Loop, Georgian Acres, Domain, North Lamar, Tanglewood Estates, Gracywoods, Walnut Creek, Quail Creek, Lamplight Village, Wells Branch, Scofield Farms and several other neighborhoods.

How you can help ….

SHARE YOUR TIME: Even if driving is not your cup of tea there are a world of ways to help your homebound senior neighbors.  Help out in our office. Assist in our next fund-raiser? Pass out flyers? If you have the time, we have the task.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT: Donations make it possible for Drive a Senior to serve our nearby senior citizens and to plan to continue that service  as the needs grow. You can donate directly to our Drive a Senior region below. And there are other ways to contribute by doing things you normally do anyway.
