Friends Association is a non-profit organization based in West Chester, PA. We provide case management to families who are experiencing homelessness or near-homelessness in Chester County. On their journey to self-sufficiency, our clients often have appointments in the community, but they are unable to get to the meetings because of unreliable transportation. We are in need of empathetic adults with good driving records, who can pick up the clients at their homes, drive them to the appointment and then bring them home. This can be an extremely rewarding experience for the volunteer as they will spend time talking to the clients on the drives to and from appointments.
Drivers must be non-judgemental, good listeners and empathetic to the situations our clients find themselves in. Drivers must be 25 years old, have a clean driving record, have reliable transportation, and have their PA State, FBI and Child Abuse Clearances. Friends Association will guide prospective volunteers through the clearance process.
