Our mission is to improve the quality of life for older adults by providing courteous and safe door-through-door volunteer transportation to older adults 60 and up, enabling them to obtain essential services and maintain their independence, dignity, and quality of life.

Transportation is vital to independence
Without it, living independently, accessing healthcare, grocery and pharmacy, shopping, and social interaction are virtually impossible.  While Tennessee has a robust public transportation system available in all 95 counties, many older adults report a need for additional personalized transportation that is affordable, accessible, available, dependable, safe, and offers assisted door-through-door service.
