We exist to ensure that people in transit receive assistance when and where it is needed in communities and travel hubs. The basic need has been ever present, but in our growing country and ever changing economy, the ways to meet the need have changed.
The Travelers Aid International mission is to aid people in transit who are in distress, through our direct services and through services provided by our member organizations.
