Charity Cars, Kentucky CARSTAR Donate Free Car to Northern Kentucky Homeless Shelter

2002 Toyota Highlander will transport families to doctor's appointments, social services appointments and job interviews.

Family Promise of Northern Kentucky, a faith-based agency that empowers homeless families to attain sustainable independence, recently received a 2002 Toyota Highlander car for free.

Charity Cars, a national non-profit that donates cars to assist struggling families in their transition from dependency to self-sufficiency, notified Family Promise in January of their intention to give the agency a free car. Charity Cars then worked closely with local CARSTAR Collision Care of Newport in Southgate, Ky., to repair the car and ready it for use by the agency.

"This is such a blessing to the families we serve," said Lisa Desmarais, executive director of Family Promise of Northern Kentucky.

Family Promise plans to use the car, which has an estimated value of $9,000, to transport the families in its programs to doctor’s appointments, social services appointments and job interviews. The car will also be used to pick up families who lack their own private transportation to get to the shelter.
