District Three Governmental Cooperative is an agency owned and
operated by its member local governments for the benefit of the
citizens of Bland, Carroll, Grayson, Smyth, Washington and Wythe
counties, and the cities of Bristol and Galax, Virginia.
We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for our citizens,
especially those who are elderly and those who need assistance with
transportation. While some of our services are available to all
citizens, we focus on serving those people who need us most. Our
services are designed to help our citizens to live independently and
productively as long as possible. We promote self-sufficiency and
comes from state and federal grants, local governments, United Way
chapters, other donor organizations, and from individuals, including
those whom we serve. We operate a number of field offices throughout
the district and our main office is at 4453 Lee Highway in Marion,
Virginia. You may contact us here by e-mail at
firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling 783-8157 in the Marion area, or by
calling 1 (800) 541-0933. Our fax number is 276 783-3003.
We welcome referrals from the public. We also welcome your comments and
suggestions, and we solicit contributions of both volunteer time and
resources from groups and individuals who share our vision of a better
life for our elderly friends, neighbors, and family members.
Three Governmental Cooperative, operating as District Three Senior Services and
District Three Public Transit, receives funding from the U S Administration on
Community Living, the Federal Transit Administration, and other federal
sources; the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services, the

district, as well as contributions and other community sources. In compliance with appropriate state and
federal statutes, the agency does not discriminate in admission to programs or
activities, or in employment opportunities.
