Jessica and her boys have been without transportation since 2015 when her car was totaled in an accident. Jessica started a home cleaning business and has struggled to maintain that service without a car. They have received rides from friends and someone temporarily loaned her a car. Jessica was taking courses but was unable to continue her training. With her own vehicle she will be able to resume her education. She shared, “Having a vehicle will allow me to continue to accelerate forward with life, not regress.”
She has graduated from Catholic Charities Support Circle Program. Agencies like Catholic Charities work with their clients on goals of self-sufficiency before referring them to the Wheels4Hope program.
On Sunday, October 30th, Wheels4Hope celebrated a car blessing, presenting Jessica with keys to her own vehicle at Cary Presbyterian Church. Jessica will drive off as the proud owner of a 2004 Saturn Vue.
Cary Presbyterian Church is one of over two dozen Triangle congregations who partner with Wheels4Hope to provide needed transportation. Congregations, like Cary Presbyterian, support the mission with vehicle donations, financial support and volunteers.
