What we do

Individual Rides

Volunteer drivers provide rides for non-driving older adults, 60 years and over for medical appointments and grocery shopping.  Service is available 7 days a week if a volunteer is available and requests can be one-way or round-trip.

Community Rides

Weekly scheduled community rides are provided by our driving staff for adults 60 and over to area grocery stores, fitness and wellness classes and other planned outings.

Thanks to Austin-based musician Jeff Plankenhorn, for the use of his song “Love is Love” in Chariot’s new video.

Volunteer with us

Chariot volunteer drivers use their own cars to provide seniors door-to-door rides to medical appointments, grocery stores, hair appointments, pharmacies, banks, activity centers, and support groups. 

We’re making a difference
with your help.

I have used your services since you were Faith in Action Caregivers for my radiation appointments. Thank you for getting me to medical appointments during the pandemic!

The drivers are wonderful! These rides to the doctor and the grocery store have helped me live independently in my own home.

These rides have helped me continue to stay involved in the one activity that means so much to me, volunteering at The Gathering Place.
