C.A.R.S., a Willow Creek Care Center ministry


Overcome your transportation challenges through car inspection and repair services provided by the C.A.R.S. Ministry.

We understand it can be a challenge to get around the Chicago suburbs without a reliable car. The C.A.R.S. Ministry helps individuals and families in need overcome their transportation challenges through car inspections and repair services.

All requests for transportation services require an assessment by the Care Team to determine if you pre-qualify. To meet with the Care Team, visit the Care Center during our open hours and tell the Welcome Desk or a Care Center volunteer you would like to talk to a Care Team volunteer about transportation assistance.
