Our people have a critical need for transportation and the urgency is aggravated dramatically by COVID-19. They have an ever-increasing need for people in recovery to source transportation to treatment, employment, family, recovery meetings, shopping & recreation.
Ease, access & availability to transportation services have been further aggravated by the workforce crisis, making even traditional medicaid rides to medical appointments more difficult than ever! Residents are regularly late and subsequently stranded to/from appointments which is why this is an urgent need to control/improve transportation for this vulnerable population trying to improve their lives.
It is critical that we do this now, it will save lives. This vital service will be available to transport people in recovery to employment, treatment, detox, court, probation, recovery meetings, social events, shopping.
We desire to establish a recovery-focused transportation service that will grow in size and scope until the need is satisfied. We will then further develop it as social enterprise for those in recovery (as appropriate) as a vehicle for development, growth, meaning and purpose.
This request fits our mission because transportation can not only improve the outcomes of our community residents and community partners…but it can become a viable, supportive career path for people with addiction to get involved and remain involved in giving back.
