Getting a car is a big deal - it’s independence and freedom...but the skill sets that we get to impart on these ladies buoys them beyond what a car can do. We have a “holistic” approach to get people to the next level in their lives...We teach budgeting, life skills, single parenting skills, help with job interviews...we partnered with a local food bank so with every car that we give away, we give away 25 lbs of groceries...we have a clothing ministry that provides business attire, we have a photographer taking professional headshots, an insurance company that gets them insurance with a bank that sets up free checking accounts.
When I help someone else, there is a hole inside me that gets fulfilled in a deep and meaningful way - nothing can compare to it. And we all have that hole because we weren’t made to be islands and just take care of ourselves - we were made to work together and help each other.”
