Way to Go, Inc.

In our vision for our community, no low-income working family‚Äôs employment opportunities will be compromised by a lack of affordable, dependable, legal, and safe transportation. Without this, these families struggle each day to reach the job or training that could bring them economic security. Coalition members are committed to helping families in our community become more self-sufficient by assisting them with urgent vehicle transportation needs.

Recipients for donated or assisted-purchase vehicles are nominated at monthly coalition meetings and selected by consensus. Primary consideration is given to persons who have good work records and the potential for long-term employment.

When families already own a vehicle, our coalition can assist them with a wide range of services including repairs, insurance, gas and other types of urgently needed assistance.

WARM Shelter of Waynesboro

WARM serves the city of Waynesboro's neediest citizens through the ministry of a thermal shelter. Our thermal shelter, a low-barrier winter emergency shelter, operates from November to March of each year. During those winter months we provide shelter, transportation, community referrals, linens, and some personal care and basic need items to homeless adults at no cost. To do so, we coordinate services with area church congregations and leaders who participate as weekly shelter sites and volunteers.

Homeless adults (18 years or older) without accompanying children may participate in the Shelter of Last Resort (thermal shelter) at anytime throughout the winter season. There are not any formal eligibility requirements except, in addition to being 18 years or older without children, guests must be respectful of WARM staff, volunteers, church sites, other guests, and the minimal shelter rules.
