10 Years of Service
What a great event we had to kick off our celebration of 10 years of service to our Southwest clients!
A big thank you to our keynote, Bobby Jenkins of ABC Home and Commercial Services, our clients, volunteers and invited guests.
Enriching Lives. That’s what Drive a Senior Southwest is all about.The greater Austin area has one of the fastest growing populations of adults 60 and over in the U.S. and many of those older adults no longer drive. With your help, in 2019 will we provide over 5,800 free rides to seniors in southwest Austin, Travis County and northern Hays County to 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 and, just as important, to other commitments and activities that are vital for their well-being.
OUR GROWING VAN PROGRAM
Thanks to the generous support of St. David’s Foundation, we continue to expand our efforts to help seniors age in place with our new ten passenger van!
The Drive a Senior Southwest van program provides our clients a chance socialize and shop at their neighborhood HEB grocery store. We drive to the Bee Cave HEB on Monday mornings, the Westlake HEB on Monday afternoons, and also now drive our Lakeway clients to the Bee Cave HEB on Wednesday mornings. On Thursday morning we make a van run to the HEB at the Y in Oak Hill.

VOLUNTEER SOME OF YOUR TIME: Even if driving’s not your cup of tea there are a world of ways to help your homebound senior neighbors. Are you good with a wrench? Join our brigade of part- time handymen. Like to visit? Make occasional home visits; they’re always welcome. Like spending time on the phone? Check in with a senior neighbor who’d love a chat? How about helping out in our office part time? Assisting in our next fund-raiser? Passing out flyers? If you have the time, we have the task.
PROVIDE 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.
Please help us help your family members, friends and neighbors maintain their independence and quality of life when they no longer drive!
