Make a Difference in a Family's Life

Without a car, it is difficult to have regular access to food, education, and healthcare, let alone be considered for employment opportunities. At Second Chances Garage (SCG), we help low-income, wage earning individuals and families, who are referred by our Partner Agencies, get access to affordable transportation. Therefore, making them more independent and empowered to get back in the driver’s seat of life again.
