Cars needed now!

Are you hanging onto a vehicle that you can’t afford to fix? Maybe a family member left you one that you don’t really need? Or maybe it’s just time for a trade in.
Please consider donating it to Community Auto! We take cars in any condition and if possible, fix them and sell them at low-cost to families who need a car to get to work. If your car goes to a working family in need, you can get the maximum tax deduction.
We have so many people waiting who need a car to keep their job or get a job, but our lot is nearly empty.
Call 724-443-8300! THANK YOU!

Community Auto Helps 13 Families in Need

North Hills Community Outreach’s Community Auto program put 13 low-income families on the road to success in January and February. This is the most vehicles sold in two months since the program’s inception in 2003 and Community Auto hopes to put 35 more families and individuals into “new to them” vehicles by October.

Community Auto is a unique program in Allegheny County. The program makes vehicle ownership affordable to families experiencing economic hardship, so they have a reliable means of transportation for getting to work and to meet other family transportation needs.
