The Good Neighbor Garage (GNG) Program provides vehicle-related services for low/fixed income single mothers and widows to prevent or solve vehicle crisis issues. The overarching goal is to remove the obstacle that unreliable transportation presents as women strive to be self-sufficient, maintain jobs and/or training, and care for their families. The underlying issue isn’t so much that cars create opportunity. Rather, it’s that there are many places one can’t access opportunity without a car.
Program service components, delivered on an ongoing basis year round, include:
Women are taught valuable information about their cars to increase their knowledge and confidence to prevent small issues from growing into big problems.
Work is performed by ASE Certified mechanics at Hands Automotive (Hands own repair shop), or at a GNG affiliate repair facility to address issues causing vehicle crisis issues. Read more about our repair help
Hands conducts a multi-point vehicle safety check and oil change at bi-monthly Car Care Clinics for women who’ve received other services and for those new to Hands. The women bring the oil filter.
All applications are being taken by our Hope and Care Team. They can be reached Monday – Friday from 8 A.M.-6 P.M. (Mountain Time) at 888-462-4411.
