A safe and reliable car is essential to the success of most working families. Child care, jobs, groceries, medical appointments, and so many other everyday tasks are often out of reach for families without a car. Yet, buying, financing, and keeping a reliable car is fraught with dangers for everyone and simply not possible for some families.
Working Cars for Working Families is fighting to ensure that families get a fair deal when buying and financing a car and that the lack of a car does not stand in the way of families’ ability to become economically successful. We seek to bring about policy reform to bring transparency and fairness to the markets for used cars and car finance. We also promote policy and practice solutions to help non-profit ownership programs that help struggling families get a car.
