Are you a single mom needing car or transportation assistance?

Need a car to get to work?

If you are a single mom who needs a car but have no money right now to buy yourself one, be informed that there definitely is help out there for you. If you were looking for a free car, the only way to get it is from people who are ready to donate their old cars. Of course, you could try to enter into sweepstakes or the contests, but you know how little the odds are in such cases. Most people donate the old cars to charities and that will in turn get them a tax deduction as well. If you want to receive a used car, make sure to reach out for help. That is the best way to grab hold of  a vehicle you desperately need.

Try your luck at the wheels to work program of Goodwill:

If you are not aware yet, Goodwill accepts vehicle donations from the outside and in case transportation has been acting as an insurmountable barrier for you to get a job or keep a job , apply at the nearest Goodwill center for receiving a donated vehicle. There could be a few requirements that needs to be met first in order to be eligible to enter the program. For instance, here is the requirement list at Goodwill Industries of Central North Carolina – link

Contact the local church:

Make sure to contact the local church and let them know that a car to travel back and forth to the workplace or college will be of immense help to you. In case,someone calls up the church to donate their car, you will be able to receive them. Many also wonder if it is possible to get cars from the charities, considering that many do donate them there. The truth is that most charities sell those cars after they are received. Money derived from the sale will then be used towards operational cost and helping needy families in the locality. But still, you may want to call up the local charity organizations and see if they can help you out.

Taking up a second job:

If you feel you are ready to do a second job, take it up. You can find people selling their old cars for as little as 1000 dollars in a lot of online classified sites these days. A few months of a second job can help you save that much money for sure. If you think a job from home will be a lot better, refer to our article here about the online jobs:

  5. Melva Wood says:

    Hello everyone, my name is Melva Wood and I am a single mother that is in college full time to better my life for my daughter and I. I had a son that passed away from a heart problem he would be 16 years old. I now have a 15 year old daughter who is a miracle who has had 5 open heart surgeries and they said that she would never walk, talk, and that she would be a deaf dumb vegetable. She made it through it but I have to take her to Dallas Children’s hospital for her checkups and with college and trying to work and struggling paying my bills I have no car to get her there for her Eco cardiograms on her heart to make sure that she is progressing well. I don’t want to sound like a bum or beggar but if there is someone out there who could please be our angel and donate us a car I would be forever grateful and pay you back when I finish college I only have three classes until I graduate with my AA in Social Work to help disabled children after what I have been through with my children. I really need some transportation to get my daughter to her cardiologist appointment’s that are two hours away I have no family that live in this state and no help if someone could help we would be forever grateful. Thank you for anyone who takes the time to even read this.

    I am a single mother of 2 boys who live in the country 15 miles from the nearest store and 16 miles to the school they attend and I have been raising them 12 years alone only getting child support here and there or when the dads allow themselves to be found and I have COPD which makes it very difficult for a 46 year old mom to work full time or attend school functions or sporting events which are very important to be at since I am the only parent attending. I was bit by a baby copperhead snake in May of 2011 and have had severe nerve and muscle damage since then and hospital and DR BILLS near 200,000.00 dollars and really need help with any type of transportation I can get so I can be supportive to my sons at school and other functions.

  8. Jill says:

    Hello, my name is Jill and I have just had a baby and my car fell apart before I had to leave my 6 year old daughter and come to stay with family two states away. I am desperate to reunite with her. It rips my heart out when she calls me crying to be with me, but I just cant drag her out of school for the third time this year to put her in another unstable situation. I am doing everything I can to make reunification a reality. I have applied for assistance but I do not want to rely on it if I don’t have to. I have always been very independent until just the last few months. I am staying in the country and have very little to no access to transportation. I am also in the middle of all of this trying to be an angel to three of my elderly grandparents caring for them to the best of my abilities while taking care of my two month old. I just need someone to come along and be an angel for me too. Thank you so much in advance for any advice or help that you can provide.

  10. Laurie Swanson says:

    Hello, My name is Laurie and I moved back to Washington after being in Pennsylvania for a couple of years. I have a 8 year old daughter and we had to flee from her father about 3 years ago. Thought moving to P.A. would be a fresh start and she didn’t have to fear her father there. Things where great for awhile my daughter Emily was doing very well in school and I was a volunteer firefighter. I got a fire call one evening and my roommates 16 year old daughter and her boyfriend said they would watch Emily so I went on my fire call. Found out 3 weeks later that my daughter got sexually touch by the 16 year olds boyfriend when she fell asleep. Went to the cops and CPS and then moved back to Burien Washington got much needed counceling for the both of us and now things are a lot better. She is doing very well in school and I at 39 went back to school to be a CNA. Things are slowly getting better but has been very hard with out a vehicle and now that its getting cold I hate having to walk her everywhere in the cold. So if there is anyone out there that could give help with a vehicle we both would be very thankful. Also if there is anyone else reading this and having a hard time with physical or mental abuse or just hard times remember to always have faith and you are strong enough to get out of any situation. If you need anyone to talk to for some advise you can email me at Thank You and God bless!

  20. Susannah says:

    Hey yall. My name is susannah and I just turned 20 and I have a five month old son named izaiah. We live with my parents and im in nurse aid school. My situation is that izaiah has a brain disorder and will need allot of tests, medications etc. My babies dad is in and out of prison and wont pay for anything or see him or talk to me. I dont really know him. I am recovering from an abusive relationship. I have had two jobs when I was pregnant and now I can only fit school. I dont have a care and because of that I cant have a job to pay for child care, rent, food, medical expenses, etc. Im really struggling and im kinda young and I really just need a car so I can get izaiah to neurologists doctors at least. Just getting to school is almost an impossible thing. I cant have a job because the closest walking distance place would be about 10miles away. Im in college 3 days a week for seven hours a day and I also need a car so I can get there for school, for work, and most importantly for izaiahs doctor visits. This is just a wild shot in the dark but I got nothing to lose…so any help…advise… etc would help me allot.
