About Us

March 1, 2015

Cars for Neighbors was founded in 1999 under the name Free to Be. Located in Anoka County, MN, Cars for Neighbors is a nonprofit organization that provides assistance to families seeking economic self-sufficiency. We aim to reduce transportation barriers by providing car donations and car repair to families with lower incomes. Our goal is to restore hope one car at a time.
