Mission: Hands of The Carpenter provides automobile repair and maintenance for low income single mothers and widows so that they can become or remain self-sufficient.
We are an organization concerned with the enormous financial burden and related distress that automotive repair and maintenance put on single mothers and widows as well as the rate at which this particular group is taken advantage of when in need of these services.
Programs: Hands of the carpenter provides assistance with automobile repair, maintenance and related education to enable low income single mothers and widows to maintain a job, get children to school, and keep medical appointments. This unique approach offers hope to a group who may be taken advantage of when in need of these services. In 2014, 351 services were provided for 166 different women/families. Services included 181 repair jobs, 165 maintenance services. Five vehicles were also given away throughout the year.
I have the privilege of volunteering with Hands of the Carpenter at their car clinics periodically. Hands is an amazing organization - servants who reach out and care for single parents in practical and meaningful ways. I cannot think of a better way to invest my time and financial resources. I am grateful for the Hands staff and volunteers as they serve people in need.
