How it Works

Mission Statement
Hands provides automobile placement, repair, maintenance and related education for low-income single mothers and widows in need so that they reach and maintain self-sufficiency.
Automobile repairs are provided for single mothers and widows living in Jefferson County.  Hands is currently requiring clients to pay 35% of the total repairs. That contribution is a way for each woman we serve to participate in the help we will offer to the next woman.  Here are some other simple requirements:
  • a one-on-one interview
  • repairs are provided for automobiles that are 1998 and newer
  • demonstrated ownership of the vehicle for 6 or more months
  • copies of 
    • Your valid drivers license
    • The car registration (registered in your name)
    • Current insurance

Hands does not do the following:
  • Rebuild or replace transmissions
  • Rebuild or replace engines
  • Repair air conditioners
  • Repair and vehicle damage that is the result of an accident or vandalism 

All applications are being taken by our Hope and Care Team.  They can be reached Monday - Friday from 8am-6pm (Mountain Time) at 888-462-4411
After submitting the online form, please email (click link), fax (303) 552-2381 or mail a copy of your driver's license, insurance, and registration to be considered

Car Care Clinics are every other month through the year beginning in January.  The clinics are at Hands Automotive in Lakewood (1510 Kendall Street).  To register, go to the "Car Care Clinics" page under "Get Help."  Just bring your own oil filter and we will do the rest - an oil change, add fluid conditioners and provide a 52-point safety inspection.
