[Disclaimer: While A Pathway to Hope and Home will conduct an initial check of all vehicles that come through the We Care Car Program, each vehicle is being gifted "As-Is." Therefore, any repairs required subsequent to the gifting of a vehicle will be the responsibility of the recipient. However, listed on this site to the right is McEachern Memorial United Methodist Church, which offers free car repair services through its Car Care Ministry for individuals or families who may not have the financial resources to pay for such maintenance. In addition, I have listed a source for free gas. Finally, while it is not a requirement to receive a free vehicle, we ask that you please pay your blessing forward.

One of the most important assets a person or family can own is a car for, as we all know, some of life's most simple tasks can be become headache-inducing challenges without one. From limiting employment options to making it difficult to pick up the kids from daycare or just go grocery shopping, not to mention an unexpected emergency, when you're without a vehicle life becomes much more complicated. Indeed, in today's fast-moving age, practically everyone needs a car.
The We Care Car Program is designed to address this problem by gifting nice, used cars to deserving families and individuals. Initial costs of the taxes and tag, as well as one year of liability car insurance, will be covered to make the transition of owning a car as easy as possible. Also, while a majority of the vehicles gifted will be cars, we will also try to assist those individuals or families who need a van. Finally, since we're expecting a great need for our service, all cars will be gifted on a first-come, first-served basis.

MUST be a student at an accredited university, college, or trade school, employed or actively seeking employment through a registered career agency, and/or small business owner with a current business plan. This requirement is in place to ensure we are gifting cars to individuals and families who are genuinely working to change their lives. In turn, they will hopefully inspire others to do the same. Documentation will be requested and must come from a verifiable source.
* Disabled Applicants - Exceptions will be made only with the second MUST statement pertaining to attending a college or university, being employed or actively seeking employment, and/or owning a small business as many individuals who face challenges that qualify as disabilities may not be able to fulfill this particular requirement. However, documentation to establish the disability will still be a mandate for reasons of federal reporting.
Each candidate must also meet at least one (1) of the following criteria to be considered for a free car:
