I am looking for a free or low cost vehicle to purchase. I am currently homeless and seeking permanent housing as well. Having a vehicle would help me in my housing search as well as being able to get to medical appointments.

Would anyone have any information on where I might be able to find this particular resource?

    I see many doctors. I need a car to get to doctors and things I need. I just had my 4th surgery for bladder cancer and on hormone therapy for breast cancer.

    I would love to be able to get a car.

    My car transmission just broke

    Please help me out

    I do what I can to make the world a better place every chance I get, including caring for my brother who became paraplegic after an accident 4 years ago. I had to quit my job but we manage and hey, it’s what you do for family. Plus he is getting better!

    The thing is, to add a another challenge, I was just diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. With my treatment plan, I’ll be making the 5 hour journey by myself to St. Louis quite a few times to get radiation and hopefully a bone marrow transplant.

    Right now we have a van that we use lawnmower ramps to be able to transport my brother physical therapy. It’s not too pretty but it works. Not reliable enough to get to St. Louis and back.

    So, I was wondering if there might have a good used car discount programfor someone like me? Not looking for a handout, just don’t have much money left to spend and need dependable transportation.

    My journey is not one for the faint of heart, literally. I would be grateful for any guidance.

    Thank you!
