Event description

Description

Please join us for this FREE full-day summit to support community-based transportation for special needs communities, particularly our volunteer driver programs. These programs, which primarily serve older adults, people with disabilities, and low income populations, are the lifeline to many community members in accessing medical appointments, grocery stores, community spaces, and so much more. The summit will bring together stakeholders to build awareness of volunteer driver programs, learn best practices, and strategize on the future of this vital transportation resource in our community.

The summit includes a series of workshops and discussions, such as driver recruitment and retention, reaching diverse clients, innovative funding options, coordination among the existing transportation network, marketing strategies, and advocacy with decision-makers and funders.

Everyone is welcome! The summit is geared towards volunteer driver program representatives, social service and non-profit providers, transit agency representatives, city and county council members, current volunteer drivers and clients, and anyone with a vested interest in advocating for these community-based transportation programs in South King County or the Puget Sound region.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Staci Haber, Senior Manager, at shaber@hopelink.org or (425) 943-6769.
