Learn if you qualify for repairs


Not having transportation in the Northwest suburbs can be debilitating. We rely heavily on our vehicles to get to church, get to work, doctors’ visits and so much more. The purpose of the C.A.R.S. Ministry is to assist you with basic car repair so that you can get back to doing life.

All guests interested in car repairs must visit the Willow Creek Care Center during service hours and meet with the Care Team to determine eligibility. To meet with the Care Team, come to the Care Center and check in with an Intake Host. Inform the Intake Host of your desire to meet with a Care Team member regarding transportation assistance.
