Heather’s Story

Heather, who is in recovery, was starting over just prior to her being introduced to Goodwill more than two years ago. After she gained employment through Passages of Kentucky, she learned about the Goodwill Cars to Work program, which offers secured auto loans to individuals with low or no credit. She learned valuable budgetary skills through Apprisen and met all the requirements to apply for a loan.

Now, two years after starting over, she owns a car and said it has helped give her the confidence to grow as a person. She’s two years sober and the culinary manager at RobinBrooke Senior Living.

Victor’s Story

After Victor lost both his parents, he turned to drugs to cope, which resulted in a criminal charge. As part of drug court, he began completing community service hours at the Radcliff Goodwill before being hired on as a full-time employee. With the help of his free Goodwill career coach, he purchased a vehicle through the Goodwill Cars to Work program.

“Goodwill didn’t look at drug court, and go, ‘Oh, he is one of them.’ No, they were like, ‘How can we help?’”
Terrell’s Story

Terrell was a victim of gun violcene and now advocates for a safer city. He was referred to Goodwill Cars to Work and was placed in a vehicle with modifications for his wheelchair; those modifications were paid for by Vocational Rehabilitation. For the past two years, an anonymous donor has deposited money into his savings account in order to cover the cost of his payments! Terrell is completing his degree in accounting and then planning to earn a master’s.
