FIT VISTA Marketing Specialist More Than Wheels
More Than Wheels is the only nonprofit car organization in the country that uses a uniquely comprehensive set of services to meet the transportation needs for families and individuals with credit issues by allowing them to purchase new or gently used cars(2-3 years old) while providing financial education and credit-repair tools to bring about lasting change. The program combines the critical need for transportation with long term credit improvement to help individuals obtain low interest car loans and improve their lives. The More Than Wheels program, with access to low lending rates, can save a client more than $10,000 over the life of the automobile compared to a buy here pay here lender. Since inception, More Than Wheels has served just under 2,000 people and arranged for over $16M in loans. Some demographics of More Than Wheels clients include: - 65% report gross income of less than $30K. - 28% receive some form of public assistance. - 56% are single women, of which 64% have dependents. - 24% represent minorities. - 73% with known credit scores are below the sub-prime level (650). - The average credit score is 575. As a result of obtaining reliable and affordable transportation and empowered with new knowledge and skills through the progam, many are able to improve their job prospects, their family's health and well-being, their credit and their overall financial stability.
