Description of Service
Assistance for stranded travelers in crisis to return home or to a place of safety.
Call or Walk In
Assistance is provided in the form of bus tickets or the most cost-effective means to allow transit to the client's home or stable environment. Assistance is usually limited to one incident only (with exceptions depending upon the situation). Travelers Aid cannot provide assistance for clients to return to Allegheny County from another state or location.
Assistance varies. Travelers Aid will consider assistance for participants stranded in Allegheny County if verification of stranded status can be determined and proof of return to a stable situation can be solidified. Potential assistance situations include but are not limited to: runaways, stranded elderly, victimized women and children, medical situations, individuals who are mentally disoriented or situations of verified hardship. Assistance is not guaranteed and all details must be verified.
