WHAT IS CONNECTING MERCER COUNTY?
Connecting Mercer County is a collaborative community transportation project funded by Buhl Regional Health Foundation. The project has a Mobility Manager who will serve as a nexus of information for all transportation options in the service area.
The goal of Connecting Mercer County is to identify gaps in existing transportation options for underserved populations, including healthcare and other social determinants of health and well-being. The Mobility Manager will be well versed in all available options and establish connections and contacts with agencies in the area. Community residents will have access to a phone line, through which the Mobility Manager will coordinate requests, connecting residents to services.
- The primary service area is the Shenango Valley, but will include the entirety of Buhl Regional Health Foundation’s service area
- The Mobility Manager will construct a strong evidence base from which to organize project partners to best address area transportation needs
- Connecting Mercer County seeks to connect community residents to healthcare services, as well as a number of social services, improving their overall health and well-being
