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.

Our Mission

We provide access to a car ... she provides the drive


The funds collected will go toward support services, training and vehicle maintenance costs for our participants


We want to do all we can to help you develop the skills, confidence and vision in order for you to earn your independence.
