New MARTA travel assistance program helps UMCH teens and families

There is a direct connection between access to affordable transportation and economic stability. Affordable transportation is a vital component to a family’s long-term economic success.


That’s why we’re proud to announce our acceptance into the MARTA Transportation and Assistance Program for the Homeless. This partnership between MARTA and the Georgia Law Center for the Homeless will provide the teens and families we serve in Preservation Services and Family Housing Programs with transportation assistance in the form of discounted fares.


These discounted fares allow our residents to travel for job searches and interviews, travel to a job, get to medical appointments, and attend vocational training — all necessary stops on the road to wellness and economic stability.
