Autocare Haven

EIN: 82-3584630


Imagine you're a single mom. One morning, your vehicle doesn't start. The kids need to get to school. You need to get to work. You're living paycheck to paycheck so you have no money set aside for an emergency. Now imagine you're an elderly person. You're living on social security and just began receiving treatment for a cancer diagnosis. One day, your vehicle overheats and coolant is leaking from somewhere. You don't have enough money to have your vehicle diagnosed, let alone repaired. These aren't imaginary scenarios but real people who had: no money, no transportation, and no hope. Until they came to us. Autocare Haven is a 501c3 nonprofit charitable organization who provides FREE auto repairs to folks here in north Texas so they can get back on the road and on with their lives.
