Transportation Management & Services

Local churches can assist with Transportation Management and Services to help alleviate human suffering and reduce the economic impact of a disaster. Evacuees need to be evacuated and relocated. Relief workers and volunteers need transportation to and from worksites. As time goes on, many evacuees need routine transportation for appointments and activities central to their long-term recovery. For example, to find housing, employment, file insurance claims, meet with case workers, visit a local school and enroll their children, buy groceries and household supplies, make a doctor appointment, and more.
