Who We Are?
We Put People Back to Work
We are a vehicle donation charity that puts people back to work by giving them the tools they need to be successful in the workforce! The Center for Living & Learning is a reputable 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies primarily on vehicle donations to fund our mission to aid the disadvantaged in training for, acquiring and holding stable employment. When you choose to donate a used car to our organization, you’ll be helping others help themselves. Proceeds from your car donations will make it possible for us to offer our Transition-to-Work program and services to individuals needing the assistance. We offer paid apprenticeships and job and computer training to:
- Welfare to work participants
- Individuals in recovery
- Youth at risk
- Other disadvantaged individuals who need a helping hand.
Our organization is run completely by graduates of our apprenticeship program. Learn more about whom we’ve helped and see how car donations put people back to work by visiting the Success Stories page.
Due to the large unemployment numbers, The Center for Living and Learning began providing job search training to individuals with barriers to employment that are also transitioning into independent living. Although we’d like to offer paid apprenticeships to all who apply, we now assist all eligible individuals in seeking employment. We believe that everybody deserves to have a job and we seek to provide him or her with the materials and resources to make that possible.

We not only make an impact locally, but we also strive to make a difference nationally through partnering with other organizations, assisting those in need throughout the nation and working with donors from all over America. We hope you will join our cause and help us make a life-changing difference in the lives of individuals who truly need a helping hand. Help us positively impact people’s lives through car donations today.
