Explore your possibilities.

Here is a list of the wide-ranging services you may request.

PV Headers_Rides

Transportation volunteers provide rides for members using their own car. This may include rides to health appointments, pharmacies and food stores, primarily within and around central Philadelphia. All drivers must agree to a driving record check and provide Penn's Village with a copy of their insurance card, vehicle registration and license.
PV Headers_Companionship

Companions make friendly visits in person and/or telephone calls to members who may be isolated or who may be unable to go out frequently. Often the companion and member sit and talk, watch TV, read a book or play a game together. Companions may also go for walks, out to lunch, to a movie or cultural site, or read to a member with low vision. Sometimes there is a special request such as listening to or playing music, doing crosswords, or sharing other stimulating activities.
PV Headers_Minor Home Repairs

Volunteers change a light bulb or HVAC filter, hang a picture, open or close a stuck window, or provide other light home maintenance.
