Reliable and roomy transportation is giving Felicia and her family a brighter future. After four months of financial counseling sessions at Compass Center for Women and Families, Felicia became eligible for a Wheels4 Hope car. Previously, Felicia relied on public transportation, which often added two hours to her commute.  With her new minivan, Felicia can safely and efficiently get to and from work. More importantly, having this minivan means Felicia can become the primary caregiver for her disabled brother as there is ample space for his wheelchair.

The Wheels4Hope team celebrates Felicia at her "car blessing" in Raleigh. Compass Center is a partner agency of Wheels4Hope, an organization that donates cars to economically vulnerable families.
