Patience and Determination Puts Nicole on the Road

Nicole Woodward endured a 45 minute bus commute to work each day. She also struggled to transport her two young children, ages 7 and 6, to school and day care. Nicole works at a foster care facility but did not have enough money saved to buy a car for her commute.

In February 2016, Vehicles for Change, in partnership with Wayne Metro Community Action Agency, awarded Nicole a 2005 Buick Century. Vehicle ownership allows Nicole to take her children to school and drive herself to and from work with ease.

Nicole was awarded her car at a local Belle Tire where the vehicle was made road ready. A Belle Tire customer in the Flint area donated the 2005 Buick Century to Vehicles for Change after learning about the program. “Having a car changes my life in an amazing way. I am blessed and want to say thank you.”
