Mission and History
Our Mission & History
Senior Rides and More is a faith-based nonprofit whose mission is to promote senior independent living, health, and safety by providing free transportation and other services.
Volunteer Interfaith Caregivers-Southwest (Senior Rides and More) was organized in 1994 by concerned people of faith who had experience in the provision of health and human services, particularly for the frail and elderly. The founders understood the isolation and fear often experienced by these people, and they envisioned a volunteer effort to address those needs. As a result Senior Rides and More was organized as an interfaith coalition of congregations in the belief that a collaborative effort could accomplish more than any one church acting alone. All churches and faith-based organizations in our 30 zip-code service area are welcome to join our coalition.
Volunteer Interfaith Caregivers-Southwest has been in continual operation ever since its founding and has helped thousands of frail and elderly people to remain independent in their long-time homes yet connected to the community. In 2016 the organization adopted the name Senior Rides and More because free transportation is the most vial and requested service we provide.
