San Diego CA—  Think Dignity is pleased to announce it is Lyft’s first Community Grants Program winner in San Diego. The rideshare company is granting $1,000 in rideshare credits that will provide valuable support for Think Dignity’s homeless clients.

The grant helps Think Dignity provide necessary transportation for displaced San Diegans to attend vital doctor’s visits, appointments, housing screenings, and get to where they are in need of getting to in a dignified and timely manner.

“This is an incredible opportunity for the unhoused people we work with to transition off the streets and into permanent housing or employment,” said Anne Rios, executive director of Think Dignity.

Lyft is committed to empowering nonprofit organizations to do incredible work around the nation that makes communities stronger, healthier and more equitable. Each month, one nonprofit in participating regions are awarded grants in the form of rideshare credits to enhance regular or one-off programs.
