The van that shows up every few weeks is an important part of Norman Dalke’s life. It takes him to doctors’ appointments, to pick up groceries and, most importantly, for his haircut every three weeks. The van is one of the services provided by Compassionate Hands, a Yukon-based organization that helps those in need.
Dalke is one of dozens of people who utilize the van service, which provides rides throughout the Oklahoma City metro area for a relatively small fee.
“I use their van to get me to different places,” Dalke, who is visually impaired, said.
Dalke uses the services a few times each month. Sometimes, it is a short trip down the street to get his haircut. Other times, it is to make a doctor’s appointment in Oklahoma City or a dentist appointment in El Reno.
“I need a ride from somebody, somehow. I’m not well located for a blind person. I’m a half-mile from anywhere. I depend on the service quite a lot,” he said.
