Childs Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, began the Go To Work program August 2017 allowing individuals to obtain job opportunities that were limited due to limited public transportation as well as long wait times in between public transit. As our human services program progressed, the city of Richmond began to express needs in other areas. We quickly realized the need for employment transportation was not limited to just that region and began researching in hopes of one day becoming a statewide solution for the state of Virginia.
Our scheduling can be permanently scheduled at the time of enrollment or can offer flexibility from week to week. Our riders receive a peace of mind knowing they have a secured seat, consistently scheduled with no wait times. Our program has a flat, weekly rate much lower than our major competitors such as on- demand transportation. Go To Work creates flexibility upon the needs of our riders. We are more than a transportation program. Our human services transportation program, Go To Work works in conjunction with other agencies to assist with projects and local community needs.
