Jewish Family Service of San Diego’s On the Go: Transportation Solutions for Older Adults program has been named as one of the eight recipients of The Beverly Foundation’s 2012 STAR Special Recognition Award, given to senior transportation services to help them promote and provide their services.  Jewish Family Service intends to use the $10,000 award to reach its 2012 goal of recruiting 100 new volunteer drivers and to fund vehicle expenses for the program’s back-up drivers.

The Beverly Foundation’s mission focuses on senior transportation and mobility, and emphasizes transportation options for older adults that are essential to their ability to get where they need to go when they have limited their driving or have outlived their driving expectancy.
