Wheels to Work

Our Wheels to Work program awards safe, reliable vehicles to individuals and families in need. To date, this program has provided over 5,500 vehicles to our New England neighbors. All vehicles are donated by generous New Englanders who would like to see their old or unused cars, trucks, and vans serve their community members and provide them with independence and mobility.

This program is currently awarding vehicles to residents of Vermont in partnership with the Department of Children and Families’ Reach Up program and in Massachusetts in partnership with the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission.

This program is operated out of our Burlington, Vermont office and provides transportation all over Vermont and in the Worcester, Massachusetts area.

If your business or organization is interested in partnering to provide rides to employees, staff, and other individuals please contact us.
