Atlanta's Working Families Gain Access to Fair-Priced Car Loans

Ways to Work program opens in Atlanta to help families reach work and opportunity

ATLANTA (date) - The national "Ways to Work" car loan program, which has provided affordable car loans to families for more than 20 years, is now available to help working families in Atlanta. Local services are provided through the collaboration of two Atlanta nonprofits: Families First in midtown Atlanta and Jewish Family & Career Services (JF&CS) in Dunwoody. Both locations will provide low-interest loans to qualified working families that helps to buy the reliable transportation they need to remain employed, take their children to daycare, access goods and services, strengthen their self-sufficiency and improve their quality of life.
