Success Story Spotlight

Thank You to MOCO Tranisit from Montgomery County Homeless Coalition

Amy Conley, Board Treasurer and founder of the

Montgomery County Homeless Coalition

"We are greatly appreciative of the efforts MOCO Transit has made to accommodate our clients who stay with us at the Sterling House Inclement Weather Center when the temperatures are 32 degrees Fahrenheit and below. Gateway Community Action has been amazing to work with.
They were able to coordinate the shuttle coming weekdays Monday through Friday by 7:30am to transport anyone who wanted to go to breakfast at Dairy Queen. Greg Waters at DQ graciously agreed to provide vouchers for these folks to have breakfast after their inclement weather stay. Our volunteers contact MOCO transit by 6:45am in the morning if there is a need of transportation. 
We are so fortunate to live in a community that is so mindful of others. We cannot thank the Moco Transit team enough for working with us and providing this great service to the community."

We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation and admiration to Roxanne Goldman for her outstanding act of heroism in saving the life of a child who was choking. Her quick thinking, composure, and knowledge of the Heimlich maneuver played a pivotal role in this life-saving incident.

In a critical situation where immediate action was required, Roxanne demonstrated exceptional bravery and selflessness. Her ability to remain calm under pressure and effectively perform the Heimlich maneuver showcases her dedication to the well-being of others.

Recognizing the significance of this heroic act, the family, local hospital, and regional office commend Roxanne’s actions. Her courage and quick response undoubtedly made a substantial difference in the outcome of this potentially tragic incident.

It is through individuals like Roxanne that we are reminded of the extraordinary impact that one person can have on the lives of others. Her unwavering commitment to the safety and well-being of those around her sets an inspiring example for all.
