TRANSPORTATION ASSISTANCE SUPPORT (TAS) 

"helping people get where they need to be"

WHY? Uniquely addressed by JUMP, no other local or county front-line non-profit provide Gas Cards or Gas Vouchers to neighbors in need and if so seldom. Without the resources to purchase gas to get to employment and job interviews, a doctor’s appointment, school or the grocery store, life can be exceedingly challenging and manifest into multiple hardships.

 

WHY? Working poor families are much better off when they have access to reliable transportation assistance; able to maintain jobs, shorter waiting period for assistance, higher household income, able to accomplish more daily, improve quality of life, less stress, able engage, greater economic independence, able build a better life, increased employment opportunities, and contribute to community.  

 

THE BIG WHY?  Annually, JUMP distributes roughly 5200 vouchers valued at nearly $100,000. A top requested voucher are for transportation gas assistance valued at $24,000 plus assistance for Bus Passes and Bikes. Combined JUMP spent over $30,000 for transportation assistance support.


JUMP is asking community businesses, partners and independent donors to please provide transportation assistance support and 'help people get to where they need to be."
