Helping Seniors remain Independent since 1984

Jefferson Outreach provides free rides for seniors to medical appointments, pharmacy, grocery and more.

Jefferson Outreach is a non-profit organization with volunteer drivers who take seniors to and from medical appointments, grocery store, pharmacy, senior center and more. Our safe and reliable drivers, who have completed verified background checks, stay throughout the appointment so that the senior is accompanied from door to door and back home again. Jefferson Outreach serves seniors residing in Northwest San Antonio.

OUR GOALS

To improve the quality of life for seniors over the age of 60 in the Jefferson area and surrounding communities of San Antonio and Bexar county.

To enhance our programming to its highest potential by recruiting more volunteers and securing more funding.

WHO WE SERVE

Over 5000 Seniors served each year.

62% of Seniors are living home alone and need some outside assistance or everyday needs.

Jefferson Outreach is dedicated to providing rides and free services for seniors

Jefferson Outreach is committed to providing personalized transportation services to enhance the quality of life and mobility of seniors and their caregivers in Northwest San Antonio. Founded in 1984, and supported entirely by partnerships and donations from individuals, local business, Churches, foundations and grants. We aim to help those, 60 years of age or older age gracefully and comfortably within their homes.

Services Provided

TRANSPORTATION

Transportation is essential for maintaining independence and health. Without a reliable way to get to medical appointments, grocery store or social events Seniors are unable to realistically remain in their homes as they age. Jefferson outreach provides free Senior transportation to help keep older adults connected with their community. By providing this free service we are able to prevent seniors from being or feeling isolated in their homes.

TELEPHONE REASSURANCE

The telephone reassurance program is designed to help homebound elderly and disable Seniors remain in their homes for as long as possible by our Volunteers reaching out to them with weekly phone calls, social support and safety checks. This program is meant to reduce isolation and help give Seniors the confidence they need to remain in their homes.
