Why Is It – Low Income Car Ownership Program

There is social enterprise that I have been aware of and been following since it started many years ago. It started with a simple premise : Take donated cars and recondition them and offer them to low income working people for their basic transportation. It has been phenomenally successful. What it needs to succeed is simply a fully experienced leader who has successfully acquired the skills ( both book smart and street smart) to manage the daily operation, ...... It's a No brainer.                                                                                                                                                                        There are over 150 low-income car ownership programs scattered around the U.S. The most successful of the bunch is this one that I speak off. I was running my Automotive businesses in the area when it started and I knew the originators. Here is a link to Vehicles for change : : https://www.vehiclesforchange.org/                                                                                                                                                                                                Why is it that every city hasn't adopted a similar program? This is one of those rare instances when a charity can be self sustaining relative quickly. After the initial start-up phase is over the program generates enough income thru it's properly run operation to sustain it self. Just imagine for a minute if you were in that group of low income people who is employed and needs to depend on a car, ...  and can't get ahead because of the lack of a decent ,reliable, affordable car. ...  just imagine trying to live YOUR life without one! Here's another program that has been very successful and how it has helped many people : http://www.goodnewsgarage.org/Success-Stories There is also many other benefits of this type of social business such as training mechanics, detailers, tow truck operators and other employees. It also generates favorable publicity. ...  Just imagine of the press you get when you "award" a car to a needy recipient!   Again:             Why is it that every city hasn't adopted a similar program?              John
