Health, independence and feeling connected are among the greatest needs for many of us. For the elderly and those with disabilities, these needs may be even more significant.
For nearly four decades, Volunteers of America’s Dial-A-Driver program has helped address these very real concerns. By providing critically needed transportation, Dial-A-Driver has been helping others live more fulfilling lives.
Our seven specially equipped shuttle vans provide point to point transportation for Wyoming Valley’s elderly and individuals with disabilities who have few, if any, other transportation options.
Courteous and helpful drivers transport riders to doctor’s offices, medical and therapeutic appointments, grocery shopping, day programs and other quality of life destinations.
To keep fees low, the program is partially funded by the United Way of the Wyoming Valley and by Luzerne County. For years, the United Way and county government have recognized the need for service and the quality we provide.
Dial-A-Driver service is provided Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. throughout the Wyoming Valley and Volunteers of America needs a three-day notice. For more information about the program, call Volunteers of America at 570-825-5261.
