How it works
If you are a single mom with children under 16 and you would like to apply for a Wheels From The Heart vehicle, we need you to send an application.
We would like to help every single mom in need by providing her with a car but in order to carry out our mission, we need to constantly raise awareness and financial support of our organization. We accept donated cars, sponsorship donations and our sister organization Wheels For The Heart Buy Center, purchases cars. Profits from these transactions get filtered back to Wheels From The Heart allowing us to purchase or acquire second-hand reliable cars for our moms and their families in need. We may re-post your first name and your story on social media for marketing purposes. All other information will be confidential.
Please email the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Name & contact details
- Number of children and their ages (per our bylaws, we donate cars to single moms with children under age 16)
- Tell us your story. Describe your situation and why you need a car. Please include if you are currently working. This information may be used on our website and on social media, so if you need privacy, let us know. Also include how having a car would change your life.
- We ask that moms are sponsored by a partnering organization. Our vetting process takes into account a letter supplied by an organization you are involved with. It should state a little about you and why you are in need of a car. You can find the organizations we currently partner with online. If you are not involved with any of the listed organizations, we have had churches or similar community groups write letters.
Wheels From The Heart donates reliable second-hand cars that are safe and ready-to-drive. Before we hand over a car, we have it tested, cleaned and working.
The recipient needs to have a current drivers license, insurance and a license plate before we can hand over the car. They also need to have the title changed into their name at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). We guide you through this process.
A list of current community partners are on our website: http://wheelsfromtheheart.org/partner/.
If you are involved with a church or similar communication organization and they are not on the list, we would take that into consideration. The letter is a personal reference and should state a little about you and why you need a car.
