I'm so excited! I got my car through the CARes Program. This program was an eye-opener for me, it helped me budget, and it helped me get my credit score together. This car is going to be very rewarding not for only me but for my daughters as well. We have reliable transportation! I'm so blessed and grateful for this opportunity and I could not have picked a better program.
