Jobs and appointments aren’t always local, so having access to a reliable vehicle is critical. This is especially true in areas, like Northfield, where public transportation is limited. For those who have no car or can’t drive, getting around can be a challenge.
Meeting Transportation Needs
The Community Action Center helps with transportation needs in the following ways:
- Gas vouchers, bus tokens for Hiawathaland Transit and money for minor car repairs.
- Our car donation program, Community Action Auto Recycling (C.A.A.R.), accepts cars that are in good working order. We then give them to clients that meet the right criteria.
The CAC's Impact
Last year, the CAC gave 400 households bus tokens and assisted with $6,900 worth of car repairs.
