Wheels…and Boots on the Ground

Winter shelter is in the rear view mirror but Housing El Dorado’s van is still in service. Colleen Ivazes has put it to good use providing transportation services to folks working their way upward. Some of the transportation needs include medical appointments, rides to and from work, court dates, trips to the methadone clinic, and relocation assistance.

Boots on the ground activities have included finding safe housing for vulnerable women in recovery and, for medically fragile individuals. When she’s not on the road, Colleen procures, warehouses, and distributes clothing, hygiene items and camping gear. Additionally, she provides transportation to Friday Showers (and a hearty Thank You to our partners in the Friday Day Navigation and Shower Program: Green Valley Community Church and Housing El Dorado).
