Bicycles, homelessness, and unemployment

I'm gathering some research on how access to bicycles can alleviate homelessness and unemployment. A quick google search returned several stories along the lines of "Sharon was homeless but then somebody gave her their used bike. Then she got a paper route, and now she can pay rent on an apartment." There are several non-profits across the country who fulfill this need.

Does anybody have a similar story bookmarked or close at hand that you would like that share with me?

Thanks in advance.
