Shopping Bus

Shopping Bus

H.O.M.E.'s wheelchair-accessible shopping bus serves older adults living in senior buildings throughout Chicago. Seniors are given free, safe transport from their residence to a nearby store where they can shop for groceries, medication and household items. They are then taken back to their residence where our driver helps them with their packages and ensures they are safe and secure before leaving.

In 2019:

  • We provided 3,304 shopping trips to low-income seniors of 28 buildings, on average. This includes a renewed contract to serve 7 Chicago Housing Authority buildings.
