Our West End neighbours need your help!
The West End Seniors Network (WESN) has been operating as a non-profit society since 1982 and aims to improve the quality of life for adults aged 55+ by providing social, educational and recreational programs and services that foster connection and inclusion in the broader community.
Since last July, WESN has offered a volunteer-staffed driver program, which has used Modo to give more than 200 rides to seniors living in the West End to medical appointments. While those with vision impairment and mobility challenges benefit most from the program, WESN staff and volunteers found that social connections fostered through the program helped alleviate some isolation felt by seniors in the community.
If you have 3 hours a week, you can make a real difference in someone’s life by volunteering with the WESN driver program. (Availability must be during weekday office hours.)
