Ways to Work provides small, short-term, low interest loans to working families with dependent children. The loans are used to help individuals with challenging credit histories to remain in or to move forward in their jobs—a critical asset of financial stability. The vast majority of loans are made for the purchase of modestly priced, used vehicles. In addition to stabilization or improvement in their employment situations, clients have increased their financial literacy, raised their credit rating, heightened their sense of self esteem, and, for those obtaining a vehicle, brought about a significant improvement in their family’s quality of life.
