Meals on Wheels and More

“Eight years after a car crash that left her paralyzed from the waist down, Jo relies on the TEF transit pass program to get places. A client of Meals on Wheels and More (MOWAM), she suffers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and has frequent medical appointments. She also lives on a very limited income, so she’s grateful for the free booklet of bus passes she receives every month from MOWAM, courtesy of the Transit Empowerment Fund (TEF). Her main use for the vouchers is to get to and from the doctor’s office. Jo has been receiving the passes since late 2014 and can’t imagine her life without the TEF program. ‘I really appreciate it,’ she says.”
