Distance: 896 Miles
Free or low cost vehicles are provided to people who qualify on the basis of income, age or disability
The Wheel Get There program provides vehicles to people experiencing low income with vehicles they receive as donations.
The cost of the car varies with age, mileage, and potential to be a long-term solution. Every car destined for a low-income person is test-driven and an under-hood check performed, but most cars will need some work to be usable for daily transportation.
A limited number of vehicles are leased to people who are in need through the Wheel Get There Program.
Almost any car donation is accepted.
