SAINT's mission is to help seniors and people with disabilities maintain their independence and self-sufficiency by providing them with a connection to the community through personalized door-to-door transportation.
SAINT Volunteer Transportation was founded thirty three years ago in Fort Collins by two women who believed there were elderly people in the community who could remain in their own homes longer if they only had transportation assistance. They knew that there were people in the community who would help with that transportation if they were contacted. They started SAINT with a small seed grant on a card table at city hall. SAINT has grown and expanded to help people with disabilities and to serve Loveland over the years, but has kept the same mission of keeping people independent by mobilizing volunteers to provide rides to all the goods and services people need to maintain a reasonable quality of life at home.
"Most helpful, phone scheduler is outstanding! Drivers always polite, safe and friendly. Best service available!"
"I am a caregiver (daughter-in-law) for a client with dementia. Saint has been a true blessing for us and has allowed us to keep our loved one "home" with us and has delayed putting him in Memory Care. The drivers have all been wonderful to him and he stands at the door waiting each day for his friends! Can't thank you enough. A lifesaver for us!"
"I think what you do is perfect. You helped me out so much. It would be impossibly hard without Saints. It's truly amazing what Saint does. The best service anywhere!"
"This volunteer service is a vital part of my maintaining my ability to keep appointments, etc. thus providing me more independence. The drivers are courteous and very helpful."
