DART Van Donation
Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority’s (DART) announced in October 2017 that they were accepting applications for their Van Donation Program. This program grants up to three 15-passenger vans to help nonprofit community groups or governmental agencies enhance transportation in the DART service area annually.
Eyerly Ball CMHS and 11 other entities submitted an application to DART Van Donation Program.
On December 5, 2017 Eyerly Ball CMHS was informed that they we were one of the three agencies chosen to receive one of the vans. We took possession of the van on December 19, 2017 and it was put into service immediately.
The van will be used to provide transportation for our clients in our Residential and our Day Habilitation programs. This van will increase our capacity to assist our clients:
Accessing medical, mental health and community resources
Integration into the community
Facilitate their movement towards greater independence
We are grateful that DART has established this program to support the transportation needs of our community. Their generosity is greatly appreciated.
