Please read the following testimonial from one of their clients:
“On behalf of our entire family we deeply thank you for helping us obtain a car. For us it is much more than just a car, it is independence, safety for our children, and a decrease in stress & worry. You have made our 2012 wishes come true and we take this responsibility very seriously! Best wishes, (borrower’s name omitted to protect confidentiality)”
This program is the only one of its kind in San Diego and is based off a national model that has been in practice since 1984.
