CareConnect, a local Boulder County non-profit, has been awarded a $6,000 grant from the Jared Polis Foundation Gift Fund. These funds will be used to support the Medical Mobility program, which provides volunteer-escorted transportation to medical appointments for seniors and adults with disabilities.
Medical Mobility has grown tremendously over the past few months! In July, 73 Medical Mobility volunteers provided 377 rides to medical appointments! The funds from the Jared Polis Foundation Gift Fund will allow CareConnect to continue to build capacity to meet the needs of the growing Boulder County senior population.
One client said, "I am extremely grateful for the Medical Mobility service. The program has helped make my life so much less painful. I greatly enjoy the company of the volunteer, who is such a warm and wonderful person. Without the support of this program I would not be able to receive the care I need."
