On average, people outlive their driving ability by 7 to 10 years.

There are very limited transportation resources in Calumet County, and the best resource currently is volunteers. Do you have a couple of hours a week to give an older person or a person with a disability a ride to a doctor’s appointment, the grocery store, the pharmacy, etc.? 

Volunteer drivers are offered mileage reimbursement at the federal rate which is $.58 cents per mile. To learn more about the Volunteer Transportation Program operated by the Calumet County Aging & Disability Resource Center, please give volunteer coordinator Kathy Groeschel a call at 849-1451.
