Make a difference in a Senior's life!

Please consider volunteering with Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JF&CS) AgeWell through the AgeWell Rides or AgeWell Visits programs.

AgeWell Rides

Do you want to make a direct difference in a senior’s life? Join AgeWell Rides’ team of volunteer drivers! Through AgeWell Rides and our volunteer drivers, our community is working together to keep seniors active, independent and on the go! Help a local senior who needs to get to a medical appointment or go grocery shopping – or attend any activity that helps them stay active and independent. It is an easy and flexible way to make a big difference to an older adult.  AgeWellRides Website
