Working Wheels provides affordable, reliable transportation to local families in need. We do this through two programs: the Vehicle Purchase Program and the Vehicle Repair Program. For the Vehicle Purchase Program, we repair and refurbish donated cars and sell them for an affordable price to working families. For the Vehicle Repair Program, we offer deeply discounted vehicle repairs for people who cannot afford to repair a vehicle they already own. We offer these programs because we know that a dependable car opens the doors to education, employment, access to healthcare, and an improved quality of life.
To choose the program participants, we partner with local organizations focused on a range of important issues, including housing, education, employment, domestic violence, financial empowerment, substance abuse recovery, re-entry from incarceration, and healthcare. For individuals struggling with any of these issues, the lack of dependable transportation is often a primary barrier to overcoming them. Working Wheels focuses squarely on removing this barrier, one car and one family at a time.
The role of the Working Wheels shop is to assess and repair vehicles – both donated vehicles and those that come to us through the Repair Program. Unlike a traditional shop, we do not have a profit motive, but rather seek to keep the vehicles going for as long as possible for as reasonable a cost as possible.
