Uber NW Community Impact Initiative: Bill

Aug 12, 2019 | by NW Division

Bill is a disabled veteran with major mobility issues. He needs two knee replacements and uses a walker. This makes it incredibly difficult for him to get from The Salvation Army’s William Booth Center to the bus stop for his VA hospital appointments. It is difficult for Bill to walk at all.

With his physical limitations, Uber has been a godsend for Bill. Our grant from Uber has allowed him mobility he wouldn’t otherwise have. He can attend all of his medical appointments without worry. Furthermore, Bill has been fortunate enough to receive a housing voucher from Snohomish County Housing Authority and is working to find his own place. Without Uber, Bill would not be able to get to Everett to meet with his housing case manager. Uber has allowed Bill to travel without restriction to find his permanent home. Bill is extremely grateful to Uber and how the grant has helped him successfully transition to independent living.

The Salvation Army Northwest is honored to be a recipient of the Uber NW Community Impact Initiative. Through this grant, we are able to safely and efficiently meet the needs of Seattle’s most vulnerable populations.
