Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to keep the community moving so that more of our clients are able to apply for the job 15 miles away from their home without concern for transportation. Seek medical treatment they need at Hospitals or out of state clinics and put food on their families table.

- Collaborate with local organization in the community to connect with their client in need of repairs
- Continue education program so our volunteer can continue to learn life skills around automotive repairs
- Work with board members and others on strategic planning
