TIN Drive Team Volunteers are needed! 

AHTN receives many calls from our local homeless and residents who need rides to doctor appointments, counseling, court dates, food pantries, laundromats and thrift stores to obtain clothing. Most of the requests are during the day, Monday through Friday. Volunteers have the option of using our TIN minivan or their own car and will be reimbursed for gas or mileage. It is recommended that you have someone else with you, especially if AHTN does not know the client very well. We also will not permit females to drive male clients unless they have someone else with them.

Please contact Nikki Farrior 215-550-3868 ext. 101 if you are interested in serving this very much needed mission.
