Evaluations are conducted with vehicle recipients 6-months after receipt of their vehicle and again 12-months after receipt. As a result, there is a year lag in our data reporting. (6-month data can be made available upon request to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
September 2021 note about FY19-20 data: Surveys of individuals who received vehicles in FY19-20 were conducted in FY20-21, during the coronavirus pandemic. Barriers to employment included no childcare (many daycares closed during covid-19 and schools moved to remote or hybrid-schooling); business closures = loss of jobs; covid-19 infections with long-covid recovery; etc. As a result, Wheels for Work saw a drop in the typically-high employment rate. Still, there are signs of progress already: as children moved from remote-schooling back to in-person, one vehicle recipient was able to return to her position. And other promising signs are on the horizon too.
