New (To Us) Vehicle!

The Hand Up Project is pleased to be the recipient of a used vehicle through Community Transit’s Van Go program.  This year 33 groups submitted applications in the competitive grant program.  The Hand Up Project is one of 12 recipients that will use the retired vanpool vans and paratransit mini-buses to help people in the community.

A lack of transportation is often a barrier that prevents people who are homeless from accessing services, rebuilding their lives, and obtaining employment.  The Hand Up Project provides transportation for over 14,000 trips per year, and this vehicle will allow us to drive people to critical appointments and housing locations.

Thanks Community Transit!  More information on the Community Transit Van Go program is available online at https://www.communitytransit.org/VanGo.

While we gratefully receive this vehicle, we still need ongoing donations to pay for gas, maintenance, etc.  Please join us in helping people rebuild their lives by making a donation today.
