Wheels to Work

The Wheels to Work Program

 

Wheels to Work is an innovative program dedicated to helping homeless and low income individuals in the Sacramento area. In operation since 2009, Wheels to Work is the product of a unique collaboration between Paratransit Inc., Women’s Empowerment, the Sacramento Housing Alliance, Sacramento Steps Forward, the Department of Human Assistance, the California Department of Rehabilitation, and other homeless and housing service providers.

 

The program operates vans that are used to transport homeless men and women to job interviews, training programs, access a mobile computer lab, and reach several key service sites — without this transportation option, they would be unable to perform these most basic activities to gain steady employment. The Sacramento Bee recently profiled Wheels to Work in an article found here.

 

Bob Erlenbusch, Executive Director of the Sacramento Housing Alliance, and Linda Deavens, Paratransit’s Chief Executive Officer, will share additional information about this innovative program that is literally driving to end homelessness at our February 23 luncheon.
