About Us

      New Life Car Care started in 2001 when the founder, Dan Craw, saw a need in the community to fix cars for single moms that couldn't afford to take their cars to a garage for repairs. Since then, we've expanded our operations to include most anybody that qualifies financially. We've been able to help hundreds of people over the last nine years keep their cars running so they can continue to work, take their kids to school and the doctor, and do the basic things that a lot of us take for granted. Car repairs are just a part of what we do, we also accept donated cars and give them to people that need them, hold free car classes, and we also help people buy cars so they don't end up with bad deals. Recently, we started helping people find cars that the owners might be willing to donate. We accept financial donations as well as vehicles and since we are a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, all donations are tax deductible.


Who does Car Care help?

      We primarily help single mothers and the elderly on fixed incomes. We also offer services to other people who qualify. Please feel free to contact us to see if you qualify.


Does Car Care help people that do not qualify?

      Yes, we offer services to those who don't qualify for the free repair program with the understanding that they have to pay for all of their parts plus a donation equal to what a repair shop would charge for the same work. Please keep in mind that our time is limited and that we might have to refer you to a repair shop.


What services does Car Care offer?

      We do a wide range of general repairs, tune ups, brake work, and oil changes. Feel free to call and ask about anything, if it's something we can't do, we will tell you.
