Supporting Independence

About Transportation Services

Great River Faith in Action’s volunteers provide transportation rides to seniors 60 years of age and older to places such as the doctor office and grocery store. These rides allow seniors to maintain their independence. Great River Faith in Action is a hands-free provider, which means seniors need to be able to get to, enter, and exit the volunteer’s vehicle under their own strength. Walkers are permitted, but wheelchairs are not.

Rides are Free of Charge

GRFIA provides rides free of charge thanks to our donors.
If a senior would like to make a goodwill donation to GRFIA upon receiving a ride, they can do so. All donations are greatly appreciated, and help support this ministry.

Recently we received a letter from a senior thanking us for her transportation rides. Here is what she had to say – “My driver is always so nice and helpful when he takes me to my appointments. Thank you for always being there.”

Senior Woman (Alice)

A senior woman who has received many transportation rides recently shared with us what a joy it is to have GRFIA. She stated that everyone is so pleasant, and the drivers are wonderful, making it a pleasure going to appointments.

Senior Woman

Since January 2018, a volunteer has traveled 2,031 miles to help seniors. Needless to say, he has been one fantastic volunteer and we want to tell him thank you. It is because of volunteers like him that we are able to keep this ministry going.
