About Us

March 1, 2016

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 neighbors with lower incomes. Our goal is to restore hope one car at a time.


The news segment from North Metro TV below covers The Taste 2016 and the importance of reliable transportation. It features several local restaurants who participated in the event talking about their views on transportation and the delicious food they served to support neighbors in need of car repair.
