Transportation makes a difference in people’s lives. No matter the quality of health care, the enjoyment from a social activity, or the wages from a job, people always have to get somewhere.
While most people can afford to ride JAUNT, some can’t. They need help to maintain their connections with their community. If we could wax philosophically for a moment: To venture into the world is to assure a soul’s dignity and independence, and, therefore, reason for living. JAUNT Friends, a 501(c)3 organization, awards scholarships to the financially disadvantaged, so they remain active in society and as independent as possible.

Without JAUNT Friends, I don’t know what I’d do. Their scholarship takes a big weight off my shoulders.

If it wasn’t for JAUNT Friends, well, great day in the morning! I wouldn’t be able to see my mother, go pay bills, or go to the doctor.

The scholarship has helped me quite a lot. I don’t know what I was gonna do. I couldn’t go work, see movies, or anything.
