See How We Serve Our Neighbors

N2n Ride

The Ride program is the first and core program offered by Neighbor to Neighbor. We match local volunteer drivers with older adults and/or individuals with disabilities who need a ride. Whether it’s a ride to the doctor or barber shop, to pick up prescriptions or groceries, our volunteers are here to help sure that our neighbors not only have access to have their critical health needs met, but also to have their social and emotional needs met as well.

I need a ride!

You can request a ride from an N2N volunteer if you are:

  • Actively enrolled in our program
  • Between the ages 21-59 with qualified medical appointments and are unable to drive yourself
  • Age 55 and over and need medical or quality of life appointments and unable to drive yourself
  • Live within Horry, Georgetown, and Williamsburg counties in South Carolina
  • Are able to walk on your own or with a cane or walker. Unfortunately, volunteers cannot transport wheelchairs or provide assistance with passengers who need wheelchairs.

I want to give a ride!

We’re so glad you want to volunteer to give a ride! You qualify to drive if you:

  • Are at 21 years old with a valid driver’s license
  • Pass a criminal background check
  • Have a vehicle with valid insurance
  • Pass a driver record check

N2n Connect

When you live alone, sometimes you can go days without speaking to another person. Our Connect volunteers have conversations with a neighbor needing a friendly voice and occasional check-in. The Connect calls are a proven way to fight social isolation. Connect volunteers are supported in the following areas:

  • Training
  • Orientation
  • App-generated phone number
  • N2N Staff Support
  • Flexible Scheduling
