"Mobility maintains and improves quality of life..."
As the Athens Mobility Coordinator, I am committed to assisting residents in coordinating, informing, educating, and developing solutions to transportation issues in Athens and Athens County.
These difficult economic times have placed heavy burdens on families, the elderly, people with disabilities, low income individuals, and caregivers. Our social service agency budgets have decreased as the demands for services have increased. Coordination of transportation services countywide and exploring new opportunities to improve transportation options will make life easier for all residents and the agencies working hard to provide relief in these difficult times.
Although as coordinator I do not physically provide transportation, I can help individuals seek solutions to particular transportation situations facing them or their families.
All of us are facing a point where we will be mobility challenged in some form and through education we can all be better prepared to face life without being able to drive. Illness, hard times, or vehicle replacement and operating costs can quickly force unpleasant situations upon any of us.
Remaining in our own home as long as possible is an important goal of all residents and by pooling our resources we can strive to make this a reality for as many people as possible in Athens County. Please feel free to fill out this form or contact me at 740-767-4500 to discuss how I might be able to help bring information or services to you or your loved ones.
