Massachusetts Advocates Standing Strong (MASS) has put out a call for volunteer drivers as part of its “New Freedom” project. New Freedom seeks to make transportation efficient and accessible for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities with the goal of promoting self-advocacy. Too often, our developmentally and intellectually disabled neighbors have to rely on others to speak for them—New Freedom gives them the ability to advocate on their own behalf.
All you need is a car, a responsible driving record, and the willingness to make a committment to helping our neighbors. For more information, please contact MASS’s Ilyeen Ismail by phone at 617-624-7749, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
