Workers at JobSource and the United Way aren’t the only ones who are excited about Moving Madison County.
“The students and instructors are very excited to participate and be an intricate part of the program,” said Davis. “They are proud to get the program up and running. They get to offer a key contribution – free labor.”
To begin offering cars to low-income families, JobSource is in need of donated cars and money to purchase parts or possibly cars at auctions. Participants in the program will be required to purchase the title, have proof of car insurance and obtain a driver’s license.
“From year to year we don’t know what will happen in Congress,” said Smith. “We don’t know how long they will continue to offer assistance or how much money will be available. With the family development program we are trying to set people up so they don’t need government assistance."
