JARC Grant Funding Expands Mobility in Dekalb County

The Center for Pan Asian Community Services, Inc. (CPACS) will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to launch the CPACS Express, a bus line dedicated to the Clarkston Mobility Project, on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 from 10:00am to 12:00pm at 3510 Shallowford Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30341. CPACS is a private nonprofit located in Atlanta, Georgia whose mission is to promote self-sufficiency and equity for immigrants, refugees, and the underprivileged through comprehensive health and social services, capacity building, and advocacy.
CPACS will present its two, 14-passenger CPACS Express shuttle buses to the Asian & Pacific Islander (API) refugee and immigrant community and those who helped bring the project to fruition. The ceremony marks the inception of affordable transportation for the API refugee and immigrant community in Clarkston, Georgia.
CPACS Express also serves as an employment mobility project granted by the Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) Program and New Freedom Funds through the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) to connect and increase mobility options for the Clarkston community in DeKalb County. CPACS will greatly increase mobility opportunities within the area particularly for the Bhutanese, Burmese, and Nepali communities.
