Auto Repair

Through Auto Repair, United Way of Greater Stark County partners with Stark County Job and Family Services to help local families get back on the road.

This program provides financial assistance, up to $1,000, for costly vehicle repairs that many working families cannot otherwise afford. With repairs performed by ASE-certified mechanics, we help these families get the reliable transportation they need for employment.
