Created & Led by Women

WOMEN UNITED® members are dedicated to removing transportation barriers that face women by providing support of $1,200 or more annually. The transportation fund provides access to gas cards, car repairs, bus passes, travel fares, and other transportation needs. The fund specifically supports local women who have limited resources get to work, medical appointments for themselves or sick family members, get access to food pantries, or meeting other transportation needs. This makes it possible for women in our community to support their families, themselves, and improve their livelihoods.
