New JFS Transportation Service Begins
The Community Engagement department at JFS has launched a new program providing transportation in and around St. Paul and its suburbs for people 18 and older who cannot drive or who have limited access to transportation. Those younger than 18 can participate if they are accompanied by an adult.
To enroll, a new rider must participate in an assessment with a JFS staff member to ensure they can safely use the program. Licensed volunteers transport clients to medical and other essential appointments or errands using their own personal vehicle and insurance. Transportation will be available to eligible riders Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with a maximum of one round trip per week.
This program makes it possible for people to fully participate in activities that support their health and social needs, allow them to remain safely in their homes, and enhances their quality of life.
There is no fee for using the transportation program; however, donations to the program are always appreciated.
