Vets Helping Vets
The Vets Helping Vets program provides scheduled individual rides to needed appointments and services for Veterans. The service is door-through-door and drivers will assist passengers in getting to the correct location within the clinic or hospital. Rides are provided in the volunteers' own cars and are usually not accessible. Actual ride scheduling is arranged between the ride scheduler, the driver and the rider. Service area is all of Dane County. Rides are dependent on driver availability. The drivers are veterans.
