Free Car Repair for Single Moms

While perusing online stories about single moms I came across this one about an organization that gives free car repair for it’s city’s single moms. It’s a very uplifting story of one man’s quest to help single moms get car service. It started out as a ministry in his church but it grew exponentially in 6 weeks so he had to branch out and form a nonprofit organization called Hands of the Carpenter. At first the services included home and car repair but the car repair requests became the most popular request at 600 calls in that first 6 week period.

It’s people and organizations like this that make life easier for the single mom who may be struggling financially but need basic services. A broken down car adds to the burden we face so God bless the people who are offering services like this.

Hands of the Carpenter is located in Denver, Colorado but there are other organizations around the country that offer similar services. Here’s a list of a few organizations in the US that are helping single moms with auto repairs or transportation:

Helping Hands for Single Moms – Scotsdale, Arizona
Wheels of Success – Tampa, Florida
Christian Auto Repairmen Serving (CARS) – Indiana

    My name is Crystal and I’m a single mother of a ten year old daughter and a six year old son. I’m also a college student at South University pursuing my Associates in Allied Health, and working full time at a distribution center in Poinciana, Fl which is located 45 miles from the city I live in which is Orlando. The reason I’m writing this letter is because I’m in the need of major car repair that I can not afford at this time nor do I have any relatives that are able to help me at this moment. I just recently found out when going to get an oil change that I need my head gaskets replaced, my engine oil is leaking into my antifreeze. I was told that it cost at least $1,100-$1,500 to repair. And I’m not sure how long this has been this way. All I know is that I can’t drive my car that way and I need transportation at least back and forth from work because the bus does not run that far. So I’m asking that if you or someone you know can donate money or repair my car for a much cheaper price please contact me.

    Thanks you,

  4. Well, Colorado but there are other organizations around the country that offer similar services.

    What a great person to start this. I am a single mother. I work 40 hours a week and have a 5 year old daughter. I have been alone since she was born. I have always worked with a couple short spurts of being out of work. My bigest concern is I live in the rurl mountains of northern NH. I have a job but the bills eat up my check and when my car breaks im going to not be able to get to work which is 40 min away. I think this thought almost everyday. Thank god someone out there is trying to help single moms like myself. We truly need it. God Bless
