Anoka County Medlink coordinates volunteers who generously give their time and vehicle to provide rides to Anoka County residents.
To be eligible you must be one of the following:
- A Veteran
- Senior Citizen over the age of 60 years old
- A Client of Anoka County.
Transportation is provided to medical clinics throughout the Twin Cities region. This includes Veterans Administration medical facilities (including the VA in St. Cloud) and Anoka County Government Offices (for clients).
Medlink provides rides to and from medical, dental, and social service appointments. Medical and dental trips may be made throughout the metro area while appointments with social services must remain within Anoka County.
Passengers must be able to travel independently as volunteers are unable to provide assistance.
