Website: https://freedomroadtransportation.org
Freedom Road Transportation (FRT) is a non-profit organization that seeks to empower people living with 
low-income with a convenient and cost-effective transportation option. Most riders use our program so 
they can get to and from doctors appointments, employment, worship services and grocery stores.
&
FRT allows people to improve their quality of life by not being isolated from their community. Some of the riders include single mothers, senior citizens, veterans, people with disabilities and others living with low incomes. Drivers donate their time and receive mileage reimbursement using the Federal guidelines.
&
FRT continues to address the needs of people who would otherwise be isolated in their homes or solely dependent on family and friends for transportation. Presently we have no ‘wait list’ for enrollment in our program.
&
FRT is in the process of transferring people off the list as funds arrive.We are encouraging people to place their names on the wait list so we can use this important ‘demonstrated need’ information while we seek additional funds and grant opportunities.

Website: http://www.matrixhumanservices.net
We’re excited to announce that we and our National office have lifted the requirements of our Matrix 
Ways to Work program to include employee’s without children! Ways to Work provides low-interest 
loans to help people buy a car to strengthen their self-sufficiency and improve their quality of life. 
Having a car is not a luxury, it’s often a necessity. In order to get and keep a job, you’ve got to be able 
to go to where job opportunities are located, show up on time and also juggle family responsibilities. 
Public transportation can’t always meet those needs. In addition, paying off the car loan helps people 
improve their credit record, which is a critical step in attaining financial stability.
Our new requirements! Spread the word!
If you are ready to take the next step and participate in our program; we need you to attend Financial 
Orientation. Call to see when the next scheduled orientation is!
