Baltimore Nonprofit Vehicles for Change receives General Motors grant

Wed, Aug 2, 2017

Vehicles for Change Inc. (VFC) recently received a General Motors Global Corporate Giving for $91,000 to support the expansion of its automotive training program. Because of the GM award, VFC will be able to hire an additional instructor to train even more auto mechanics through our Full Circle Auto Service & Training Center.

VFC empowers families with financial challenges to achieve economic and personal independence through car ownership and technical training. 

In 1999, VFC 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.
