Thank you for your interest in becoming a Volunteer Driver!
If you are not familiar with Wheels for Wellness it is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides free transportation to medical appointments and treatment for those without other means of transportation. Many transports are to dialysis, chemotherapy and radiation in addition to doctors’ appointments.
The program is a managed by two part-time staff, an Executive Director and a Scheduler. The service is provided by a fleet of generous volunteers. Drivers are credentialed through Valley Health Volunteer Services after completion of a one-day orientation. The orientation includes a DMV background search and TB test.
WFW volunteers use their own vehicles to transport clients. Personal liability and secondary auto insurance coverage is provided by WFW but we also require that volunteers carry their own auto insurance.
There is no required driving. Volunteers may sign up for transports that work with their personal or work schedules. Should a conflict arise after a volunteer has committed to a transport, we ask that our office be alerted promptly so we may make alternate arrangements for the client. Transports are scheduled two weeks in advance.
WFW provides pertinent information for each transport. We ask that volunteers contact clients in advance to confirm transports and that volunteers be prompt for pick-up. We also ask that client information be kept confidential. All clients are ambulatory, so any assistance needed should be minimal. We ask that volunteers convey to WFW any concern regarding a client, particularly if a client’s mobility becomes impaired.
Inclement weather policy is on a case-by case basis, as transports vary. No volunteer however, will be asked to drive in conditions in which they are not comfortable.
Volunteers are asked to submit time and mileage monthly for all their transports.
A Valley Health credential affords discounts from selected area retailers, VH cafeterias and coffee shops, as well as free flu shots and educational opportunities. Annually, WFW volunteers will be recognized at WMC and WFW events.
