Transportation Assistance

Transportation Assistance
United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley and our partners understand the importance of access to reliable transportation.  We also understand that this can be a significant barrier for some adults and youth.  Our goal is to help those who need it gain access to transportation for medical appointments, employment searches, educational purposes, Dept. of Human Services appointments, WIC and other basic needs services, counseling, parent education classes, school conferences, and other critical social service appointments.

  • Adults and youth are better able to obtain good jobs and have more opportunities to succeed,
