For Shannon, the lack of reliable transportation was impeding her ability to work and provide for her family. Without it, getting her two children to school and activities and commuting to work was a nearly insurmountable problem. As someone who had escaped a domestic violence background, what she wanted most was to get herself and her family on the road to freedom and self-reliance.
