Transportation is extremely important to the older foster youth in Ventura County. Often, they need to be able to get to school and to work and need to be able to get fro place to place quickly and easily. RaisingHOPE will also pay for bus passes, but there are also times when public transportation just won’t work because of tight schedules or if the youth has children to move from place to place as well.
RaisingHOPE will accept vehicles that are donated and match them with youth. We will also pay to have their car repaired. Working with trusted local mechanics, we can determine if a particular car is repairable or if a car is worth buying.
