Ride Partners

PIC Ride Partner Volunteers utilize their own vehicles to provide transportation to fellow PIC Members with arm-in-arm, door-through-door service to pivotal destinations that positively impact the health and well-being of their peers. From non-emergency medical appointments to visits to the pharmacy and grocery store, they are there to assist, waiting nearby for the return trip home. Anywhere you would typically grab your keys and drive to, these dedicated individuals are ready to provide – not just a ride – but, a journey filled with compassionate care, friendly conversation, and genuine smiles!

Testimonials From Ride Partners

"I am blind in one eye and have low-vision in the other -- so I don't drive. Always felt like I was "begging" someone for a ride to a Dr.s appt. Read about Partners in Care in the local newspaper and gave them a call. I'm now a member and feel like I have my independence back. I call, get a ride with great people who want to serve. Thanks for what you do."

"While I was still working, Partners in Care was a great help getting my elderly mom to and from appointments during work hours. She was always confident in having them drive her and very thankful."
