Just wanted you all to know how grateful my family and I are for folks like you and the impact you’ve made on our lives! Thank you!!

WHEELCHAIR ASSISTED TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM

Our Wheelchair Assisted Transportation (WAT) Program is our newest program. Three days a week, Monday, Tuesday, and Friday, our van runs, driven by our two drivers, Jeff and Matt. Our van always has a volunteer that rides with our driver, to assist with boarding and for companionship. If you are interested, please reach out to our office.

“Becoming homebound has been tough but LVC and your volunteers have been such a positive experience.  I have met great people and being able to go out for coffee and the newspaper has made such a difference in my life.  I want you to know how much it has meant to me.”
