Are you interested in driving county residents to critical appointments? We
hope so, because Catch-a-Ride needs you! And Catch-a-Ride has a special need
for drivers in rural areas such as Gardner, Spring Hill, and De Soto.
Catch-a-Ride is a completely volunteer-based program in which elders, people with a disability, and people in a major life transition are given rides to medical appointments, grocery stores/food pantries, and social service agencies. Clients are people who cannot drive themselves and do not have a network of people who can drive for them.
Volunteers can drive “anytime, anywhere” or only at certain intervals or in certain areas of the county. We are very respectful of driver needs and schedules.

This Spring 2013, the Johnson County Nutrition Program, with the support of a grant from the Meals On Wheels Association of America and the Wal-Mart Foundation, has inaugurated a Home Plate nutrition program for elder residents following discharge from a participating hospital.
The program will provide short-term meal service to seniors and retired veterans to assist in their recuperation, decreasing the incidence of hospital readmission. The grant will initiate meal delivery within 72 hours of hospital release.
