Press release from Indianapolis Office of Minority and Women Business Development:
INDIANAPOLIS – On Tuesday, January 3, 2023, Mayor Joe Hogsett joined the Office of Minority and Women Business Development (OMWBD) to award Consistent Care Transit LLC as the Certified Vendor of the Month for January 2023. Consistent Care Transit LLC was chosen as the Certified Vendor of the Month due to their commitment to diversity in honor of MLK Day on January 16.
“As a certified XBE, Consistent Care Transit represents our thriving and diverse local business landscape,” said Mayor Joe Hogsett. “But by addressing social and mobility needs for seniors and those living with disability, Renee and her staff are also building a more prosperous, humane, and equitable Indianapolis for us all.”
Consistent Care Transit LLC, a certified minority and women-owned business enterprise, offers seniors and others with difficulties living by themselves assistance with daily living activities, transportation, and 24- hour care in its adult residential care home. The business offers short and long-term care and helps keep its clients active by hosting free events in the community. Renee Coleman was inspired to start Consistent Care Transit LLC when she became the caregiver for her mother and cousin and had difficulty finding reliable transportation. Shortly after creating Consistent Care Transit for transportation assistance, she opened a group home dedicated to ‘helping those who once helped us.’ Consistent Care Transit has recently expanded to two locations, one on the north side and one on the south side of Indianapolis. Coleman is a part of the Indiana Black Expo’s (IBE) first minority cohort dedicated to sharing resources with other minority-owned business enterprises within the Indianapolis community.
“We would like to thank the Office of Minority Woman Business for awarding Consistent Care Transit LLC as Vendor of the Month,” says Renee Coleman. “A big shoutout to Mr. Ron Franklin and Mayor Hogsett for all their hard work and dedication for helping minority business owners.”
The Certified Vendor of the Month is an ongoing initiative between the City of Indianapolis Office of the Mayor and the Office of Minority and Women Business Development to bring attention to certified minority, women, veteran, and disabled-owned business enterprises (XBEs). Businesses chosen as the Certified Vendor of the Month are picked from the XBE Directory based on outstanding work in their field of business and service to the community.
