The following providers offer care for rides, special needs, and family mental health. Our sponsor providers came together to initiate the Covid Childcare Collaborative, but we are not an exhaustive list. Please check back regularly for additional providers, or submit your organization to be included here.
HopSkipDrive is a safe youth transportation solution which connects those in need of a ride — age six and up as well as senior citizens - with rigorously-vetted CareDrivers. All CareDrivers are required to have at least five years of caregiving experience and pass a stringent 15-point certification process.
HopSkipDrive has capacity available to help our community during this time of crisis. Whether that be meal delivery for a senior, taking a child to pick up free lunch from a school meal program, getting children with IEPs to their appointments, helping health workers with their child transportation needs, and much more. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
