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 families, referred by our Partner Agencies, get access to affordable transportation making them more independent and empowered to get back in the driver’s seat of life again.
