On the Move
Our On the Move program provides low cost rides to medical appointments, social activities, theater, worship services, family events etc. to Cambridge at Home members aged 80+ enrolled as participants in the program.
CAH members pay 50% of the cost of a private ride arranged through CAH. This is not a taxi service so advance notice is required for most rides, but the destinations are not as limited as with our current volunteer ride program. Each year participants are given a budget for On the Move rides based on how much grant funding was received by CAH for the program for the year.
On the Move rides feature reliable, vetted drivers who will arrive on time in a clean car (no vans) that is well maintained and insured. Drivers provide assistance getting to and from the house or car as needed by the rider. No cash is needed at the time of the ride. Drivers will bill CAH. On the Move participants will maintain a credit card on file at the CAH office and will be billed upon at the end of the month for half the basic cost of the rides (tolls, parking, wait time charges are not covered and are billed at the full rate).
On the Move is 100% grant funded. The organization raises funds through outside donations.
If you would like to help with this fundraising effort please email the office! Read how you can make a Donation to CAH. The more money we raise the more rides we can subsidize for the CAH members who need assistance with transportation to remain independently and safely at home.
