Earning your trust for more than a century!

We’re excited to share how we’ve adapted to meet changing area needs for more than a century.  What’s more important is that we’ve never changed our hometown values either.  We’re still a people-focused agency with dedicated, caring staff and experienced, committed leadership to provide you with quality human services.

August Sponsor of the Month

BankChampaign has been a loyal friend to our services for seniors for many years.  We are pleased to recognize them for their recent donation of $2,500 to Senior Transportation.  Thanks to their support we can offer rides at no charge to people age 60 or older to medical appointments, grocery shop, go to their bank or attorney or even to volunteer.  Thanks for helping hundreds of older adults get out of the house to where they need to go.  You’re really making a big difference!

If you have a couple of spare hours a week, we could really use your help!

Family Service needs more volunteer drivers. 

We can reimburse your gas mileage. We order a cab when we don’t have volunteers, and pay half the cab fare (MTD pays the other half for those with a DASH pass).  These costs are becoming more than we can afford.

Call Terry Goode at 217-352-0099. 

Have more money than time?  Your tax-deductible donation to Family Service Senior Transportation will also get older adults where they need to go.
