For families who rely on public transportation to get to work and school, having access to a reliable personal vehicle can be a game changer. Our Hand Up Cars program helps credit-challenged parents access low-interest auto loans and financial education, so they can rebuild their credit, increase their earning potential, spend more quality time with family, and be more active in their communities.
“On behalf of our entire family, thank you for helping us obtain a car. A trip to school for my children used to take 3 buses and an hour and a half – but not anymore. For us, this is more than ‘just a car’ – it is independence, safety for our children, and much less stress and worry.”
Applying for an auto loan is completely confidential.
We’re here to answer your questions and help you get started.
