DASH Volunteer Driver Program
On June 17 the City launched DASH - Drivers Assisting Seniors in Healdsburg, a volunteer driver program. The development of this program is the outcome of a survey of Healdsburg’s older adults that found transportation was the number one concern for remaining independent, valued, and vibrant members of our community. The program is funded through the City’s Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) along with a Caltrans grant awarded to Sonoma County. For more information on how to ride - or to volunteer as a driver for the program - please visit the program page, email email@example.com or call the DASH hotline at 707-431-3159.
