An unexpected car breakdown resulting in a lack of transportation can have devastating effects on family income and stability.
Reliable transportation is a critical need in the suburbs where hospitals, schools, workplaces, stores and places of worship are often far apart and public transportation options are limited. Interfaith Outreach provides financial help with car maintenance and repair, car payments, license tabs, gas certificates and bus passes. The goal is to ensure people can find and keep jobs. And volunteer drivers provide rides to medical appointments and classes in Adult Basic Education and English Language Learning for residents of all incomes.
