One of the biggest problems faced by low-income families is an unexpected car repair. In a county where the mean travel to work is 23.7 miles, losing access to a reliable car can result in catastrophe. If you can’t get to work you may lose your job, which could cause you to lose your home. To prevent this domino effect, we offer car repair assistance, transportation vouchers, and used cars to individuals and families who lack reliable transportation to work and/or to obtain medical treatment.

The simple little things is what I'm looking forward to most, but also: having better access to doctor appointments, school, and being able to rely on myself it is an immense sense of relief. And I'm very thankful for that.
