Name change reflects expanded services
North Hills Community Outreach has expanded its transportation and car donation program. The program, formerly called Community Auto, is now the Transportation Assistance program.
Sharon Wolf, NHCO’s executive director, said, “The goal of our expanded Transportation Assistance program is to help even more struggling families meet their transportation needs. NHCO has accepted vehicles since 2005, but many people need alternative transportation assistance. The name change reflects our more inclusive services.”
The Transportation Assistance program, like all other NHCO programs, is free for those who qualify. Applicants must be low-income residents of northern Allegheny County outside of the city of Pittsburgh. When funds allow and if applicants qualify, NHCO’s Transportation Assistance program now can provide:
- transportation costs such as gas cards, CONNECT cards and ride share
- vehicle repairs
- car seats and AAA memberships
- limited matching funds to purchase a vehicle to get to work
