JOAN DEBORAH TRANSPORT was placed into service on
March 6, 2021 with a single 7 passenger van.
Shortly thereafter, a donor gave JOAN DEBORAH TRANSPORT
a 15 passenger bus. While the donor gave to this foundation with no charge , the bus
needs some major enhancements to be safe and up to standard for the population we service.
For more information please visit our website
We service 3 populations
  • Those with Disabilities (Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and Cognitive Delay)
  • Senior Citizens
  • Youth Groups ( 5 - 22 years of age)
Enhancements that have been completed
  • Engine Overhaul
  • Cooling System
  • New Heavy Duty Truck Tires
Enhancements that are in progress
  • Cosmetic Facelift ( Electrical/Safety Lights, Buffing/Painting, Rims/Hubcaps)  
  • Safety Buckles and Brackets ( to secure wheelchairs properly)
  • Wheel Chair Lift Correction/Maintenance
These enhancements are a bit costly and this foundation needs your help.
Please consider giving to this project. It will allow us to service our population
in a safe and comfortable manner.
