Our Ambassadors meet once a month to discuss how to improve our community outreach. Each member of our Council is deeply entrenched in their communities through their churches or business organizations, as well as being committed volunteers for Drive a Senior!
Our Executive Board
Our Ambassadors Council
Our organization has its roots in a 1985 pilot program called Faith In Action - Senior Access. The Greater Austin Metropolitan region was targeted based on 1980 census tracks that showed a high concentration of people over the age of 60. Modeled after a national volunteer caregiver project, the pilot program offered transportation, companionship and minor home repairs; services that enabled older adults to continue living independently.
Today a network of six organizations with the same mission make up the Drive a Senior network, serving Austin, Elgin, Pflugerville, Round Rock, Hutto and Southwest Travis County. In 2015, Drive a Senior volunteers provided more than 30,000 rides; with all services included, our network devoted almost 70,000 volunteer hours to 2,381 older Central Texas citizens.
While each service area provides direct services to seniors in its coverage area, the network joins together to raise money, increase community awareness, and expand into unserved and under served areas.
