Claudia Burch, 63 Retired attorney and volunteer driver

Over the past four years Burch has logged nearly 20,000 miles as one of the busiest drivers for Houston Ground Angels, a group providing free local transportation for people traveling to the city for medical care.

The retired lawyer does more than save patients from $75 airport taxi rides; she’s taken them shopping and out for dinner, and even housed them.

Keenly aware of the stress patients face in their travels, Burch says her mission isn’t just financial: It’s assuring people that a caring person is there to help them.

“Getting a ride is a small piece of what these people are going through, but I don’t think it’s small to them,” said Burch.
