If you need transportation try Skagit Transit. Skagit Transit has many regularly scheduled routes that may fit your need (see http://www.skagittransit.org/routes/).
If you or a loved one has special need perhaps the Community Van Program can help (see http://www.skagittransit.org/additional-services/community-van-program/).

Please Note: In addition to the resources listed in our “Community Resources” section, we want widows and widowers to be aware that many of our local churches have general grief share support to the general publicSWSS, on the other hand, focuses on the newly widowed individuals.
