SERVING OUR COMMUNITY FOR OVER 25 YEARS
Senior Access was founded on the premise that our senior neighbors lead happier, healthier lives when they “age in place”. But how does one continue to live at home without viable transportation, basic chores around the home, or access to essential services?
Family members may be distant or sometimes unavailable.
Public transportation is not designed for individual attention and can require physical stamina some older adults do not possess.
Taxi service can be costly on a fixed income.
Senior Access connects volunteer drivers with seniors needing a way to get around. We focus on low-income areas, seniors who cannot afford transportation, and our aging neighbors who need a safe, reliable way to get around.
Our mission has its roots in a 1993 pilot program that revealed a high concentration of seniors over the age of 60 living in the Round Rock area. Today, Senior Access has expanded and serves the Round Rock, Pflugerville, Hutto, and East Austin areas with pride.
In 2019, our 609 volunteers dedicated over 25,416 hours of their time providing over 15,000 rides. We currently drive more than 1,756 clients, adding 304 new clients in the past year. We see the need for these services continuing to grow for years to come.
Every Senior will have access to essential services.
We provide free transportation and support services that enhances independence and quality of life for all of our Senior clients.
