Women With Drive Foundation provides a car to women in transition in exchange for their participation in programming that identifies and addresses her particular barriers to independence, helping her to achieve self sufficiency.

Our mission is to provide women with a figurative and literal vehicle to their independence.


More important than the actual car, our participants are given the opportunity to identify her particular obstacles to independence and to design a plan to overcome them. We use existing resources within our community (other nonprofits, schools, programs and other agencies) so that duplication of services and redundancies are lessened.
