Ways to Work


Ways to Work is a program that offers low interest loans for buying or refinancing used cars that are needed by parents to more easily meet job demands while raising children. This program is offered to those persons whose credit would not allow them to get a traditional loan or could only do so at very high interest rates.

Goal: To improve the financial conditions of distressed families and move them towards financial independence.

Three Main Components:

  1. affordable credit
  2. high-touch client support
  3. financial education

Contact 877-601-ARMY (877-601-2769) for more information.

“Approximately 80% of those participating in WtW’s financial education classes and car loan recipients are low-income, working female heads-of-household. ”
