Vehicles for Change

OEI is a participating facilitator of the Vehicles for Change program.  Through this program, qualifying clients can purchase a vehicle for an average cost of $1300, with a VFC guaranteed loan, which helps them establish credit.  Each recipient receives a six-month/ 6,000 mile warranty.

Studies show that 73% of recipients are able to obtain better jobs and that 94% take their children to after school, athletic and community activities never possible before.

Benefits to Recipients:

  • Very low cost transportation
  • 15 month loan guaranteed by VFC.  Recipients are able to establish credit.
  • 6-month warranty
  • A car orientation class reviewing the basic maintenance procedures of car ownership
  • A team of dedicated professionals ready to help in any way we can
  • AAA membership card

Recipients must be referred to our program by a DSS VIEW Worker at a participating DSS or OEI Self-Sufficiency employee.   For more information, contact Jessica Harlan at 276-889-0290.
