JFSGO: Transportation Services


Description of Services

JFS provides two types of transportation services to members of the Jewish community who are older adults or people with disabilities:

Volunteer transportation:

JFS volunteers provide free transportation for older adults to medical appointments, religious services, and Jewish community social events. As this transportation is provided by volunteers, at least 1-week advance notice is required. At this time, our volunteers cannot accommodate disabilities. Please note, that due to the volunteer nature of this service, rides cannot always be guaranteed.

Contracted transportation:

Subsidized individual transportation provided by a contracted service for medical appointments, religious services, Jewish community social events, grocery shopping, and drug stores/pharmacies. This service is fee-based, allowing you to contribute towards the cost of your rides and the continuity of our transportation program. To qualify for our contracted transportation:

  • You must be 60 or older and unable to drive (temporarily or permanently) OR
  • An adult under 60 with a disability and unable to drive (temporarily or permanently)

To be accepted into the JFSGO program, request an application at the JFSGO direct line (919) 397-4390, email JFSGO@ShalomRaleigh.org or submit it online.  Once your application is approved, you will be contacted to complete additional documents.  No rides can be scheduled before an application is approved.

JFSGO is partially funded by  BJH logo and the Legacy Heritage Fund
