If you saw a woman and children stranded by the side of the road, would you stop and help?



Women With Drive Foundation doesn’t provide a ‘handout;’ nor is it an entitlement program. This short-term intervention identifies stalled women with drive and provides a needed jump-start to liberate them and their children from dependence on welfare.

We provide access to a car…she provides the drive

Women With Drive Foundation provides a car to women in transition in exchange for their participation in programs that identifies and addresses her particular barriers to independence, helping her to achieve self sufficiency.

This systemic approach targets the root cause of dependence for women, enabling them to not only elevate their own productivity, but it also provides an example to their families. Having this level of independence has a positive effect on their income, the economic vitality of their communities and the lives they touch.
