Vehicles offer us one of our greatest sources of independence, yet often times that independence is challenged by a vehicle that is under-serviced, unsafe, in need of repairs or even inoperable. The Pearl Group’s Transportation Program is primarily focused on safety for single parents and their children, providing periodic safety checks, essential repair work, temporary public transportation options and, in extreme situations, donated vehicles.
Car Care Clinics
Each year, The Pearl Group’s Transportation Program services 100+ cars of single parent families during monthly Car Clinics. Held on the second Saturday of months September through June, Car Clinics provide single parents a free oil change and 30-point safety check to ensure they can safely and consistently get to work, daycare, medical appointments, etc. In collaboration with local auto shops, The Pearl Group’s volunteer mechanic teams provide all vehicle routine and safety maintenance.
On the Day of a Clinic
Vehicles are picked up from an agreed upon location and are returned within two hours having undergone basic maintenance services. A detailed written explanation of any required/suggested additional vehicle safety needs is provided with the return of each car. If safety repairs are needed, follow-up occurs immediately: Referrals are made to trusted auto shop partners who provide discounted opportunities at various levels. We expect that by providing this free service, participating single parent families are driving safe and reliable vehicles.
