New Van for CHEEERS

CHEEERS was delighted to accept the keys to the first of two vans awarded through the City of Phoenix Public Transit Division and the Federal Transit Administration Section 5310 Enhanced Mobility for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program. Pictured is our CHEEERS staff standing in front of our new  2017 Chevy Express 12 Passenger van that will be used to transport our programs participants to various community outings, resources and events.  CHEEERS offers an OutNAbout program with a primary purpose to develop recreational, social and community integration skills.  Five times a week we are out in the community at various activities to include our Adopt a Street Program, Graffiti Busters, and visiting our Community Garden on the weekends.  Having a van that can transport 12 of our participants, safely to and from these events allows us to engage more individuals in activities. We also have a van equipped  for wheel chair access on the way! Thank you to our partners at City of Phoenix that made this process seamless and for supporting what we do at CHEEERS.
