ITN Expands Again

I just got this email press release from ITN America. It shows how ITN is expanding to bring transportation services to seniors in more cities across the country. I heard Katherine Freund speak about a year ago and was very impressed with how she developed ITN. It's a good case of social entrepreneurship.

ITNAmerica is very pleased to announce the establishment of ITNRacineCounty. We are especially grateful to Racine County and to the Racine County Economic Development Corporation. ITNAmerica now has a network of 16 affiliates in 12 states.

"We are so happy to be in Wisconsin and to celebrate the birth of our newest affiliate", states Katherine Freund, Founder of ITNAmerica. "We are already ramping up our training and support staff to help them build their new organization."

"Racine County is committed to finding creative ways to improve the quality of life for all its citizens without unnecessary burden on our taxpayers", says Racine County Executive Bill McReynolds. "Bringing ITN here to Racine County will provide a wonderful boost to seniors' quality of life, with safe, reliable, and dignified transportation. We are proud to help foster such an innovative program."

ITNAmerica is the first and only national non-profit transportation system for America's aging population. To learn more, please visit www.itnamerica.org.
