In the last eight months, I have put 12,736 miles on my car for my job, which requires me to travel and engage with civic leaders across the 18 counties of Northeast Ohio. Without a car, I could not effectively perform my job. I am not alone. Increasingly in Northeast Ohio, employment is contingent upon having reliable access to a vehicle. Without one, many jobseekers are stuck in a cycle of no car, no job, no job, no car.
How do we break this cycle?
