Has anyone ever gotten help from DHS (welfare) for a car. I've heard of a Ways to Work program but you have to have had your job for at least 6 months and I've only been at mine for 4. I'm getting promoted to be a shift manager and my car recently broke down beyond reasonable repair and I sent it to the junkyard. A lot of people are telling me that DHS can give me some type of voucher for a car but I'm soo anxious to know what it's all about and I can't find anything on the web. Have any of you ladies in Michigan ever utilized it?
I've only heard of getting a car from certain churches. DHS here will pay your car insurance and repairs up to $1000 a year I think but they will not purchase or help buy a car for you.
In NE you have to go through a program called employment first..and once you complete the program they give you a $2500.00 voucher to get a car. They will also pay $50.00 to have the car ran through a diagnostic test..to make sure you are not getting a junker. I dont have to many details about it and I only know of three people get the voucher.
Yes you can get a car from DHS. I just recently received my car from them. They pay up to $2000. But anything more you have to pay.
