Mother's Day Car Giveaway
Our ARA shop owners have helped to select a mother who has been nominated by Eve’s Place to be awarded our annual Mother’s Day Gift.
This year our shop owners got together to fix up a company vehicle from a local business that was no longer being used. The Buick Century was given personal attention to make sure its running beautifully front to back. Along with the award of the new car, our mom has been given a full year of maintenance and service to her help get back on her feet and keep her running smoothly on the road.
Our 2015 recipient is Erika! We could not have selected a more grateful mother. The smile on her face and excitement in her “happy dance” said it all.
Thank you to Eve’s Place for partnering with us to help a mom who is truly doing all she can to make a better life for her son and for herself. We are honored to be a part of your great work in our community.
Eve’s Place Inc., founded in April 2004, is a non-profit organization in the West Valley of Maricopa County. For over 10 years, Eve’s Place has provided innovative and empowerment based programs to victims of domestic violence. Currently, Eve’s Place provides transitional housing to victims who are ready for their own residence based on their budget and needs.
Eve’s Place has introduced Mobile Advocacy to victims in 10 communities in the West Valley. This new program brings services to victims in their own community. Advocates have all the necessary resources to provide individual and group support in a location that is convenient to the victim. This alleviates the number one barrier in accessing services for victims, transportation.
Eve’s Place also offers a Youth Program providing education, information and supportive services to youth and teens about domestic and teen dating abuse.
Eve’s Place is able to provide services to any victim of domestic abuse regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender, income, etc. All services provided by Eve’s Place are free to victims of domestic abuse. Their support services can be financial as well as emotional. No victim has been turned away from the mobile program since its inception.
