Drivers Are Urgently Needed

Do you have a couple of hours a month that you could spare to drive an individual to and from a medical appointment? If interested in volunteering to drive, please call the FISH Hotline at 703-437-6000 or visit our Volunteer page.

Note that we require evidence of auto insurance, good driving record and we will do a background check, a common practice among volunteer organizations that serve children and/or elderly persons.
