Hear about some of the recent experiences of people using this service!
Did you know that, quite often, individuals go without proper health care and even without food because of a simple need, like transportation? Some are even forced to leave their home or apartment and enter an assisted living or nursing home, just because of the lack of transportation.
At Care-A-Van, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. Providing transportation to the population in need is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
