I’m excited to announce that FCW will be accepting 2 applications for Americorps VISTA members this year!

FCW is committed to helping people overcome transportation barriers, be more physically active, and connect with others in a supportive community. Many community residents rely on bicycles for their everyday transportation but lack the resources necessary for proper maintenance. Through FCW’s programs, community residents are provided opportunities to learn bike maintenance and repair and utilize professional grade stands and tools to keep their bikes in top form. Residents are also given the opportunity to volunteer in the shop and earn shop credit which can be used to purchase bikes, parts, and accessories.

FCW has formed partnerships with Columbus Public Health, Mount Carmel Health System, and many other Franklinton based organizations to interrupt the cycle of poverty. Together we’re building more than bikes; we’re building healthy individuals and families, opportunities, and a vibrant neighborhood.
