Community Programs Bikes for All

Through our Bikes for All program we help our underserved neighbors, like refugees, formerly incarcerated persons, or low income individuals, get access to affordable, practical transportation.

Our Bikes for All partner organizations work to identify community members in need of essential transportation providing them with a refurbished bike package. Along with a set of wheels, clients also receive a helmet, lock, light set, and other accessories to meet them where their needs are. Thank you to the Steinman Foundation for their support of this program.

Volunteering at TCW was a way for Velarmino to be around something familiar, and to improve his English skills. Turns out we were the lucky ones, as Velarmino taught us more than we would know.
