Transportation is key to care
For those who cannot drive themselves or have no other means of getting to their appointments, our Rides To Survive volunteers donate their spare time to give our clients a much-needed lift.
Why is this important?
Even the best treatment can’t work if a patient can’t get there. That’s why a successful transportation assistance program can be a tremendous, potentially life-saving asset to your community.
To volunteer, what do you need?
If you own or have regular access to a safe, reliable vehicle, then you’re already on the road to volunteering. But you’ll also need:
A good driving record
A current, valid driver’s license
Proof of adequate automobile insurance
Completion of the ALSIGE Foundation training course
Regular access to a computer, laptop, tablet computer
Schedule availability, typically Monday-Saturday
Join us! It will only take a minute
First, you’ll need to submit some basic information to ALSIGE Foundation. From there a volunteer care specialist will contact you to discuss the program, your expectations, and what you hope to gain from the experience so we can ensure a good fit. Then you’ll take some required training, which is self-paced and takes around 90 minutes. From there you’ll complete a background check and once approved, provide your schedule availability so you can begin being matched to patients needing transportation.VOLUNTEER NOW
