Congratulations on realizing that you are worth more.
We’re here to help you learn how to help yourself. We want to do all we can to help you develop the skills, confidence, and vision in order for you to earn your independence. That said, this is not a “free car” giveaway. We are asking for two years of your life in return. You must be an equal partner in your development in order for this to work. We believe that you are worth the investment. If this sounds like a fair deal to you, then keep reading!
DO I QUALIFY TO RECEIVE A CAR?
Are you on the road to self-sufficiency but struggle with transportation? Are you ready to gain access to better employment opportunities and want to enjoy personal independence?
