Ever try to get around Bucks County without a vehicle? How you would get to work, the grocery store or day care?
If you had told Mary a year ago that she would be housed, employed, and have her own transportation, Mary would have reminded you that she was sleeping on a cot in a homeless shelter. However, through the Rapid Re-Housing Program, BCOC’s Economic Self-Sufficiency Program, and Wheelz2Work Program, she accomplished just that and more. When Mary first entered the program she was homeless and working eight hours a week at minimum wage. With the help of her Self-Sufficiency Coach, Mary was able to obtain permanent, affordable housing and a full-time job with a self-sustaining wage. She soon after received a donated car that met her transportation needs.
The lack of safe and reliable transportation limits access to jobs and educational opportunities. The Bucks County Opportunity Council, in partnership with Bucks County Community College and the Gene and Marlene Epstein Humanitarian Fund, is currently seeking both good, used automobiles and financial support to help those in need of reliable and safe transportation.
Get the highest possible tax donation because donated vehicles are given to families in need. Your donation will change lives!
