September 26, 2023 (Rochester, NY) –Monroe County Clerk Jamie Romeo and the Monroe County Department of Motor Vehicles held a pop-up Mobile DMV event at Monroe Square today from 10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Monroe Square, which is located at 259 Monroe Avenue, is home to three agencies – Trillium Health, East House, and Compeer Rochester – which are all committed to helping underserved members of the community.
At the pop-up event, community members were able to access a variety of services, such as:
- License Renewal
- Vehicle Registration Renewal
- Replacing a lost, stolen, or missing license
- Registering and titling a passenger or commercial vehicle
Monroe County Clerk Jamie Romeo said, “The County Clerk’s Office is incredibly proud to partner with Trillium, Compeer, and East House to provide access to our Mobile DMV unit to the often-overlooked communities that they serve. These organizations continue to demonstrate true leadership, as they look to break down barriers and innovate how the public can access the vital programs and services they provide. Our teams in the County Clerk’s Office and Monroe County DMVs are honored to join them in these efforts.”
Jason Barnecut-Kearns, President and CEO of Trillium Health, said, “The partnership is an example of how government and nonprofits can work together to assist people who are most in need. Having access to DMV services is so crucial; people rely on their driver license or their photo ID to be able to get a job, obtain healthcare, or receive other important services. At Trillium Health, we’re proud to be a one-stop-shop for our patients, and we’re very thankful that the Monroe County Clerk brought another much-needed service to the building today.”
“East House is honored to host Monroe County’s Mobile DMV and to be partnering with our neighbors, Trillium Health and Compeer,” said Lindsay Gozzi-Theobald, President & CEO of East House. “Vital systems, like the DMV, can be difficult to navigate for people who are rebuilding their lives as they recover from mental health and substance use disorders. By providing access to these fundamental services, we are helping those who are underserved to move their lives forward.”
“We’re so excited for the opportunities this new partnership with Monroe County and the DMV will offer the people we serve,” said Sara Passamonte, Compeer Rochester President and CEO. “Making these important services available to our clients, here at Monroe Square where they are comfortable without the added burden of another stop allows us to continue to serve as a bridge to better mental health and community integration for all.”
This is the first collaboration of its kind to bring the Mobile DMV to Monroe Square. Trillium Health, East House, and Compeer Rochester look forward to exploring future partnerships with Monroe County to benefit underserved patients and clients.
