BlueOx Credit Union Partners with JATA, Funding Over 650 Rides for Citizens Rebuilding Their Lives

The Jackson Area Transportation Authority, in cooperation with BlueOx Credit Union, is proud to announce a new program, aimed at lowering transportation hurdles for Jackson residents actively rebuilding their lives. The program will benefit two Jackson area nonprofits and their clients. The Home of New Vision, a leader in the field of substance use disorder treatment, and the Jackson Interfaith Shelter, whose mission is working with people experiencing homelessness, serve a segment of the population that often lacks access to safe, affordable, and dependable transportation.

BlueOx Credit Union has created an account with JATA for both the Home of New Vision and the Jackson Interfaith Shelter, seeding each with $500, which can be accessed by the nonprofits to pay for a client’s bus pass or Reserve-a-Ride to job interviews, health care appointments, or other vital services.

“We commend BlueOx Credit Union for their generosity and their commitment to these Jackson nonprofits and our community as a whole. We look forward to growing this program to benefit more residents and area nonprofits,” said Jackson Area Transportation Authority Executive Director Michael Brown.

Jessica Webb, Business Development Manager for the Credit Union, who was instrumental in developing the program, said,  “BlueOx Credit Union is proud to partner with JATA in providing a solution of transportation needs for both Jackson Interfaith Home and Home of New Vision. Our core values focus on people helping people, creating solutions, igniting change, and supporting growth and prosperity in the communities we serve. We are thrilled to see this initiative come to fruition.”
