Getting a job is a big step toward self-sufficiency but the out-of pocket expenses people face just to go to work can be high. These include transportation, professional clothing or gear, child care, and licensing fees, to name a few. Especially when a job is new or low-paying, these expenses can eat up a lot of paycheck. Pro Action is here to support people through the transition, when the costs of working are highest.
Wheels for Work
Wheels for Work helps people establish a consistent, reliable way to get to and from work each day so they can get or keep a job. What's more, program recipients can keep more of their earnings instead of shelling out their hard-earned cash to pay for informal rides or a taxi service. Wheels for Work services can include insurance payments, auto repair vouchers and license and registration fees. Eligibility requirements apply. For more information about the eligibility requirements, please contact the program at 607-776-2125 ext. 121.
