UNITED WAY'S RESPONSE:
Our work in Financial Stability
Human service providers identify lack of transportation as one of the leading barriers countywide in their clients' ability to overcome challenges. UWSC is collaborating with local community partners on programs that address the transportation barrier. The Transportation Collaboration, facilitated by UWSC, meets quarterly to discuss progress on these issues. For more information about transportation options, view the Story County Transportation brochure.
