1/29/2015, 09:00AM - 03:30PM: Transportation Options Workshop

"Transportation is definitely a critical point in breaking the cycle of poverty." - Joan McDonough-Schlecht, Neighborhood House

"There is no program I know of that addresses financial benefits of transportation so directly." - Eva Song Margolis, Eastside Financial Center

TLC’s Transportation Options workshop offers social service and financial coaching staff the resources and experience they need to empower their participants to address the high cost of getting around, to save money, and to build wealth.

The one-day workshop immerses attendees into the realities, barriers, and solutions to finding affordable, convenient, and reliable transportation in order to access jobs, education, and financial stability.

We’ll discuss the asset-building potential of options such as biking, walking, transit, car sharing, and bike sharing and help to decipher when and where they make sense for families and individuals working toward economic self-sufficiency.

Inside the Workshop:

  • Uncover the true cost of transportation
  • Experience firsthand new options for getting around
  • Understand a network of solutions and support

RSVPs are required. Fee to attend: $20.
