CHR, formerly known as CHEEERS, Transportation-Related Notice

CHR/CHEEERS policy assures full compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights act of 1964 and related statutes and regulations in all programs and activities. Title VI states that “no person shall on the grounds of race, color, national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination” under any CHR/CHEEERS sponsored program or activity. There is no distinction between the sources of funding.

CHR/CHEEERS also assures that every effort will be made to prevent discrimination through the impacts of its programs, policies, and activities on minority and low-income populations. Furthermore, CHR/CHEEERS will take reasonable steps to provide meaningful access to services for persons with limited English proficiency.

CHR/CHEEERS will ensure all subrecipients fully comply with CHR/ CHEEERS Title VI Nondiscrimination Program requirements. The president and CEO has delegated the authority to Maria Whaley, director of operations, to oversee and implement FTA Title VI requirements.

Americans With Disabilities Act NOTICE

In 1990, the ADA became law that prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity and access for persons with disabilities. CHR/ CHEEERS is committed to the ADA in our role as a transportation provider. No one who uses CHEEERS transportation will be the subject of discrimination under the rules set forth in the ADA. CHR/CHEEERS Vans are equipped to accept passengers who use mobility devices.

CHR/CHEEERS Facilities are also ADA compliant offering easy-to-access services for any individual needing such accommodation.

What if I need to file an ADA complaint?

Everyone should be able to access our services and participate in our programming that offers transportation. However, if there is ever an instance where you or another member feels they’ve been discriminated against by being denied service or related reasons by CHR/CHEEERS to should initiate a complaint investigation by calling Maria Whaley at (602) 246-7607 or by emailing maria.whaley@cheeeers.org.
