The Christian Brothers Automotive Foundation has launched a 501(c)3 organization called The Hub Garage that will provide vehicles to Houston-area single mothers in need of reliable transportation.
The program will take in donated vehicles that will be repaired by Christian Brothers Automotive technicians and given to needy single moms. The goal is to give recipients hope and greater independence by improving their mobility and access to jobs, school and more.
“There are around 24,000 single moms living below the poverty level in Houston,” said foundation president Jonathan Carr. “We want to leverage what we’re already good at to help people. And, if we can lower that number by even a few families, we’ll have made a huge step in the right direction.”
The Hub Garage will work with community partners as a referral source to find single moms in need. For 2020, the donation goal is 1,500 vehicles.
“In the future, we want to expand this to all 27 of our major markets,” Carr said. “We want to grow the program’s impact as fast as we can get cars donated.”
