Cars for Neighbors is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to foster independence by providing car care. The families we serve are Anoka County residents and meet Federal Poverty Guidelines. We provide assistance with car repair services. We provide these services so neighbors in need can get to work, take their children to medical appointments, and participate in extracurricular activities. With limited public transportation in Anoka County and job growth in areas that require a reliable vehicle, it is not a luxury, rather a means to provide and maintain a healthy environment for their family. When a low-income family has car trouble, they risk losing their job due to the inability to get to work. If this happens, paychecks stop and with that their ability to pay for housing, food, child care and other necessities. Our goal is to restore hope one car at a time.
