SWOOP provides free rides for seniors to medical appointments, pharmacy, grocery and more.

Southwest Outreach for Older People (SWOOP) is a non-profit organization with volunteer drivers who take seniors to and from medical appointments, grocery store, pharmacy, senior center and more. Our safe and reliable drivers, who have completed verified background checks, stay throughout the appointment so that the senior is accompanied from door to door and back home again. SWOOP serves seniors residing in Southwest San Antonio.

Looking for volunteer drivers to provide rides as free services for seniors


If you are looking to volunteer with seniors, SWOOP welcomes you to contact us about being a driver in our transportation program. You need to be 18 years or older, have a valid driver’s license and provide your own car. Once you have completed the application process and are accepted, you’ll go through a brief training session. SWOOP reimburses drivers 50 cents a mile when the senior is in the car.
