Westside Express

The mission of this transportation service is to provide safe, efficient and accessible transportation for residents. There is an urgent need for volunteers- drivers and dispatchers. There is no charge for this program, however donations are appreciated. If you are a senior in need of transportation, please call 585-889-6104. Leave a message and someone will get back to you. This program is sponsored and supported by Lifespan.

STAR Program (Support to Aging Residents)

This is a unique program in Monroe County. It offers individual services. This includes essential transportation (grocery shopping, banking, medical transportation, prescription pick-up) and occasional needs (friendly visits, telephone reassurance, yard work and chores) to all frail, elderly persons over 60 years of age, either by a donation-based or small fee for the service program. We need your help. Volunteers are needed to do simple things that many of our elderly neighbors can’t do for themselves. It just takes an hour or two of your time each month to brighten a life. For more information call 585-262-7057.
