Caleb Susuras, AmeriCorps VISTA

Caleb is excited to spend his service year at DRMAC helping people with a disability, people who are aging, and people with lower incomes find transportation that fits their needs and gets them to where they need to go. While attending university in Canada, Caleb found freedom and mobility using public transportation and his bike to get around. Living in the inner-city he loved his newfound car-free lifestyle, even during the winter! Working at DRMAC has allowed him to help others navigate the city using alternative methods.
