A new bicycle for Alyssa who needs transportation to and from work

Posted May 4, 2018
Alyssa just got a new job at a group home for adults with disabilities. She is working the graveyard shift and the buses in her town don't run at night. Alyssa needs a bike so that she can safely get to and from work. She doesn't feel safe walking in her part of town late at night- she starts work at 11 pm. Alyssa would like a bike so that she can have reliable and safe transportation to independently get to work and her appointments.

Alyssa is 18 years old and lives in Salem, OR

Alyssa is a very spunky and fun young lady who recently moved out into her first apartment. Alyssa just got a new job at a group home for adults with developmental disabilities and is loving this type of work! Alyssa is in the process of obtaining her GED and would like to go on to community college so that she can work in juvenile corrections. Alyssa is working really hard to do what is best for her to move forward. She is making boundaries with unhealthy friends and family and making a lot of positive changes that we are all proud of! Alyssa is motivated to make a great life for herself and is working hard everyday to do her best!
