RFWF’s Care Van provides vital health and wellness transportation to seniors and individuals across the Plateau.


A lifeline for our neighbors in need of medical health & wellness transportation

The Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation Care Van is a valuable resource for individuals in the Rainier Foothills region who need assistance getting to medical appointments.

This ADA-lift equipped transportation service is the only one of its kind to cross the King/Pierce County line. We serve riders from around the greater Plateau area with door-to-door service and ensure lack of transportation never limits access to healthcare. This service is available for any wellness related appointment such as doctor visits, physical therapy, lab work, dialysis, prescription pick up and even aqua therapy.

We Appreciate Our Supporters

The Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation's Care Van program provides vital transportation services to seniors and individuals with disabilities in the community to safely reach their medical appointments. However, to operate successfully, the program relies heavily on the support of donors and volunteers.

Donations allow the foundation to maintain and repair the vehicles, purchase fuel, and cover other operational costs. Meanwhile, volunteers help drive the vans, assist passengers, and perform administrative tasks. Without the generosity of these donors and volunteers, the Care Van program would not be able to continue serving those in need

The Story of the Care Van

The Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation Care Van has been a crucial part of the community since its establishment in 1987. It offers transportation services to those in need of rides to local medical facilities such as hospitals, pharmacies, and various medical offices including physicians, dentists, optometrists, chiropractors, and therapists.

The Care Van was acquired by the Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation with the purpose of providing a means of transportation for the local community. This initiative was made possible through the operational support of the hospital and financial contributions from the Foundation and other benevolent donors.

For over three decades, the Care Van has been an indispensable resource for residents of the Rainier Foothills area, ensuring that they receive the medical attention they require.
