Posted Nov 21, 2017
Vehicles for Change Inc. empowers families with financial challenges to achieve economic and personal independence through car ownership and technical training. In 1999, Vehicles for Change opened outside of Baltimore, Maryland. After building sustainable car award and automotive training programs in the Maryland-Virginia-Washington D.C. region, VFC began work to replicate those programs nationally, aiming to bring independent transportation and training in the automotive field to as many people as possible. VFC took its first step towards national expansion by opening up its second location in Detroit, Michigan in 2015. Greg Packer, Advisory Board Chair for Vehicles for Change joins Laurel Hess to discuss how VFC is changing lives. Interview recorded November 16th, 2017.
