Our Veterans Transportation Assistance Program (V-TAP) was launched in July 2015 by MORE Foundation in partnership with Quality Transportation Services of Arizona, Since then, the program has provided more than 1,000 transports to Veterans and family members who needed to get to and from medical care.
MORE Foundation believes that routine medical care and proper follow up after a major medical event, such as an accident or surgery, is critical to Keeping Life in Motion!®. Veterans often have difficulties getting to and from their medical appointments due to disabilities that may be related to aging or injuries sustained during combat. Therefore, MORE Foundation created a program to ensure that no veteran missed a medical appointment.
Who We Serve
Many of the veterans who utilize these services are disabled, confined to wheelchairs, confined to gurneys, and utilize oxygen therapy – all of which make it incredibly difficult to use traditional forms of transportation. V-TAP helps these military veterans, who can’t simply get into a taxi or other ride share service, get to medical appointments with free transportation. In addition to transporting veterans to medical appointments, our supporters have facilitated veterans and their spouses; in getting to and from hospice, a blind veteran in picking up his prescriptions from the pharmacy, and a homeless veteran in getting to and from a housing services program.
