Onward's drivers all have a passion for helping older adults. We are highly selective of our drivers, with only 12% of applicants getting hired. Each go through a comprehensive vetting, background check and a thorough on-boarding process.
Beverly has lived in the Walnut Creek area for over 20 years. For the past few years she’s been providing companion care services to older adults she met while lifeguarding at the Rossmoor. She joined Onward because she has some spare time (when not helping out with her new granddaughter) and would like to help out more seniors in her neighborhood
Perri grew up in the Bay Area. After working in her family's bakery for 15 years, she has recently retired to Contra Costa county. She now travels regularly and volunteers at her church. She joined Onward because she likes helping others in her community and is earning a few extra dollars to fund more international trips.
Prichya has a Masters of Economics and worked for the Canadian government for 22 years before moving to San Francisco. Now that she's retired, she joined Onward because she finds it rewarding to spend time with seniors, having taken care of both her parents and her in-laws. She also volunteers for Food Runners, delivering excess food to neighborhood programs.
Safety will always be our highest priority. We've built it into every step of the journey. If we didn't feel comfortable letting our family ride with Onward, we wouldn't let you and your family either.
