Mission Statement

The Lift Garage offers people a vehicle out of poverty by:

- providing free or low-cost quality car repair;

- offering skilled job training in the field of auto mechanics;

- connecting with community partners to strengthen the support network; and

- linking customers with other needed resources.


As a thriving not-for-profit business, The Lift Garage offers quality, affordable auto repair and top-notch job training to people who are on a path to a better future.

Everyone connected with The Lift Garage is committed to respect for each other, quality work, and a living wage for our employees.

Our friendly and hospitable staff offers people excellent customer service. We stand behind our repairs and the skills of our staff.

Our well-kept garage and offices have the tools and equipment we need.

As a locally owned business, we work hard to be a good neighbor. When we make decisions, we ask: What is best for the people involved? What is best for our community? What is best for the health of the planet?

We go the extra mile for customers. If a car repair is too big for us or a customer has another important need, we do our best to connect them with helpful resources in our community.

Each day, the people of The Lift Garage feel thankful. We know that, together, we are repairing not just cars, but lives: restoring hope and opportunity by helping people get to school and to jobs as an important step toward a more promising and secure future.
