Parents Try To Break County Line Barrier
January 7, 2003
SHIPPENSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA--Like so many rural towns across the country, Shippensburg is located far from community services for people with disabilities.
The town is also located near a county line, and county-funded transportation systems won't transport residents from one county to another. So, if a Cumberland County resident has a job in Franklin County, he or she must find other transportation. The same holds true for Franklin County residents with jobs in other counties.
Parents and local officials are trying to change that, by bringing services to town or creating them.
