About Car Care Program
“Promoting Independence by providing transportation”
The Car Care Program, Inc. is a 501 c 3 nonprofit corporation that is faith-based. We accept donated vehicles, repair them, give them to individuals and families that need transportation. We also repair vehicles for those that can’t afford the repairs.
We can only do this through our volunteers and the support of our community.
"Donating and repairing vehicles for those who could use a helping hand in Douglas and Pope counties"
Without reliable transportation, it is difficult to get or maintain a job, and without a job, it is hard to maintain your independence and dignity. As one might imagine, transportation issues are huge in our community and the need is overwhelming. Unlike many bigger cities, people often can’t just take a bus to work, school, or appointments because our public transit system has limited hours and locations. Additionally, utilizing public transportation can take hours. This creates challenges when trying to get kids to childcare and get to work. It is especially challenging for single persons.
Our goal is to remove the transportation barrier for needy members of our community thus helping enable them to be independent and self-sufficient. This is accomplished in two ways. First by providing free car repairs to needy individuals, to help keep their vehicles on the road and safe. Second by repairing donated vehicles and giving them to needy members in our community who do not have a vehicle or whose vehicle is beyond repair. We utilize volunteer labor, discounted parts, and charitable donations to cover the costs of repairs.
As the center of our mission, Christ guides us as we serve.
