Amanda is a personable young woman finding her way. At 25 she has discovered she loves working with people. She made some choices that led her to lose her license and therefore the job she loved. She is wiser now and is starting over which is hard because without a car it is hard to get another job. A friend told her of our Shuttle To Work program and she called us immediately.
When she asked how much it cost, we told her we will subsidize your first month because you probably cannot pay since you have been out of work. She cried! She had nothing...
We have come across people who have lost their driver license and it leads to loss of job and then loss of their apartment. A woman who called us told us she lost her license and said she has no way to go to work, she will lose her home and everything she worked for 20 years to build. Another man said his girlfriend drove him to and from his job and she just lost her license and he would lose his job and be homeless without transportation assistance.
Most people we have talked to had a car but it broke down and they did not have the money to fix it and lost their job. This is one reason many people are stuck in poverty.
This is why we are so passionate about providing transportation to low income residents. Let's give our neighbors a hand up so they can build better lives for themselves and their families.
Will you help us by donating on our website.All donations go to helping people with transportation. Thank you for your generosity!
