Each of our programs, while unique in their approach and objectives, strives to move an individual or family along a rational continuum towards independence by way of obtaining safe, affordable housing, a means of transportation and financial viability.
Open Hearth, Inc. has several transportation assistance programs available for residents of
Chester County and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
Please see below for more information.
*THIS PROGRAM IS CURRENTLY ON HIATUS*
For our potential donor: At Open Hearth, we know how important transportation can be to financial stability, especially in Chester County, which is lacking reliable public transportation options in many areas. In an effort to provide a reliable means of transportation, our JumpStart program accepts the donation of reliable vehicles, provides tax-deductible receipts to the donors, and transfers each repaired and inspected automobile to a family or individual that needs transportation for employment or medical care.
We do not sell any of the cars that are donated to JumpStart. Every car we accept is given to people who really need it. While other car donation initiatives like “Cash for Clunkers” have affected the number of cars donated to Open Hearth, we rose to the occasion by creating a fund to provide no-interest loans for car repairs for individuals who already have a car in need of service.
For our potential recipient: Currently, we are helping people who are already involved in our programs. If donations increase, we will provide more information on this site about applying.
