Wheels to Work Program
Lack of adequate transportation is a challenge many Family Promise guests face in Gallatin County. Without a car or other dependable means of getting to and from work, many cannot either secure or keep a job in our Valley. One way FPGV is addressing this problem is through its Wheels to Work program. This program supplies vehicles to qualified families in need of transportation and supports our efforts to ensure that families can enjoy full participation in the community with reliable transportation.
For guests without their own transportation, Family Promise provides transportation services for families to make necessary appointments, work schedules, etc. To sustain this, Family Promise owns and operates a mini-van to shuttle guests throughout the day. We work diligently with these families to get them into their own car and ensure they can afford future costs associated with owning a vehicle. We have had countless successes of helping parents earn their driver’s license and become first-time vehicle owners.
For guests with their own transportation, Family Promise works with families and helps guests pay for vehicle registration, insurance, etc. for up to 2 months while in the program.
