Executive Director

 

Care-A-Van/SAINT, Inc, dba SAINT Volunteer Transportation is accepting applications for the position of Executive Director.

 

Senior Alternatives in Transportation (SAINT) is a high-impact volunteer transportation organization with a proven record of providing mobility to those members of the community disadvantaged by limited or no transportation alternatives. We have been providing door-to-door mobility for forty years to residents of Fort Collins and Loveland who are over 60 or are disabled and unable to drive. These services allow individuals to maintain their independence and improve their quality of life.
The strength of SAINT is its large cadre of volunteers (currently 100) who are willing to contribute their own automobiles and their own time driving to provide this much needed service.
