Mission Statement

Good Karma Bikes (GKB) provides homeless people, youth from low-income families, and the working poor with safe, reliable bicycle transportation to provide them the freedom and ability to travel to the places, appointments and people that can facilitate their improved quality of life; and sometimes, a way off the streets and into a better life.

Description

Homeless and very low income workers are often deprived of a basic personal freedom most of us take for granted - the ability to travel where and when they desire. That's why Good Karma Bikes is dedicated to: Transportation for Transformation!

Our Good Karma Bikes manifesto is simple and straightforward: provide and repair homeless and low income youth and adults' bicycles, for free. No need is turned away at our community bike repair clinics, where we teach bicycle mechanic skills to interested clients and volunteers so that they may join us in service to others. The "pay it forward" spirit is strong within our community. And if that weren't enough, Good Karma Bikes serves as credible and compelling job references for our client-volunteers.

Transportation for Transformation. Supporting the homeless. They take re-use of parts to the next level. Friendly, knowledgeable and supportive staff and surprisingly good working conditions (given their resources).
