Who is Eligible?

Human Services-Aging will assist clients who are over sixty years of age and are not receiving Medicaid. Aging transportation will cover the cost of transportation to doctor appointments and pharmacy visits (for prescription pickups only). The Lunch Plus Club program is also a part of their services. If you think you may qualify for transportation through Human Services - Aging, call for assistance at 704-920-1400. Take option 7 at the first menu and option 2 at the second menu.
