Providence Community Connections
Community Connections is a ministry of
Providence Seaside Hospital that transports
people to services and appointments related
to your health and well-being.
Originally called Partners for Seniors,
Community Connections now serves people
of all ages who have no other transportation
options. The program helps you maintain
independence while getting you to health
care and wellness activities.
Community Connections offers
- Medical appointments (locally and in the
- Grocery stores
- Post offices
- Gyms and pools
- Other locations as needed
When scheduling a ride, people who need
transportation to a medical appointment
get priority. We ask for seven days’ notice to
schedule a ride. All rides are subject to the
availability of drivers. All services are offered
free of charge.
Who is eligible for the service?
We serve people in our community who have
limited options for transportation. We ask
you to reach out to your support network
first before seeking our services.
People who receive Medicaid transportation
funding are not eligible to use our services to
medical appointments because transportation
is already provided by another agency. If you
need assistance, we can help you sign up for
How can I help?
Providence Community Connections is funded
by Providence Seaside Hospital, but it relies
on the gift of time from volunteers in our
community. Most volunteer tasks require two
to three hours to complete. The schedule is
flexible and volunteers decide how much
time they can offer.
