Help for the Holidays

Ready or not, the holiday season is coming!

Each year, Caring Unlimited provides assistance to over 100 families as they build safe lives for themselves and their children during this busy and demanding season.  

Thanks to generous support from our community, there are parties and gifts for children, help with food for holiday meals, new warm coats and boots for the long winter ahead, and much, much more.

There are many ways to support this program from adopting a family and shopping for gifts, to donating a gift card or winter gear for kids and everything in between.

Freedom Wheels Celebrates 10 Years!

Caring Unlimited’s Freedom Wheels Car Repair and Donation Program has helped more than 600 survivors of domestic abuse who did not have reliable transportation to get to work, school, doctor appointments and more since January 2006!

This includes 88 families who received refurbished donated vehicles and another 530 whose vehicles were repaired through the program! 

"Having safe dependable transportation for my children and myself to travel to day care and work has been such a relief!  I knew my tires were bad, and worried every mile I was traveling.  With this car I can now find employment in my field, earn a livable wage and stay self- sufficient, including paying my student loans back!"
- Recipient of a vehicle donated through Freedom Wheels

This life-changing program is made possible thanks to a truly collaborative community effort. Through the combined generosity of the Ward Family Foundation who fund the program, Kennebunk Auto who repair the cars and the Community Members who donate their used vehicles, families who are starting over are able to move closer to their goals of achieving safety, economic security and independence from the person who was hurting them.

"My wife and I donated a car to Caring Unlimited several years ago.  The experience was very gratifying and the good feeling we got from helping out a needy mother and her children stayed with us for a long time.  So when I retired and we decided to become a one-car family the decision of what to do with my car was simple- give it to Caring Unlimited, again!

There are a lot of ways to do good in the world, but this one is easy and extremely satisfying.  We highly recommend it to anyone who has a vehicle, working or not, they no longer need.

Caring Unlimited is an excellent organization to support, and someone's life will be better for your generosity."
- Steven, Two-time Donor to Freedom Wheels

Thanks also to JTG Foundation for the original start-up grant and to United Way of York County for also providing Freedom Wheels funding early on.
