Direct Services


We provide door-through-door (picking up passengers at the door of their home and delivering them to the door of their destination) Medical Transportation within Houghton and Keweenaw Counties for elderly residents age 60 and older. We also provide transportation to our nearest regional hospital in Marquette. We also provide handicap accessible transportation using wheelchair vans. This service is provided free-of-charge.

We require at least one week notice to enable us to recruit a volunteer driver or reserve a wheelchair van.

To request transportation, please call the Transportation Coordinator at 482-6944.

 

Many Copper Country residents still heat their home with firewood. We supply our elderly friends with a load of firewood each winter to offset their annual heating costs. Donated firewood must be used solely for home heating, not for discretionary heating such as for sauna firewood.

To request a load of firewood, please call Debby Hart, Supplemental Firewood Coordinator at 482-6944.
