Helping people move toward economic self sufficiency.
A car takes you far!

Who We Help

The Samaritan Car Care Clinic provides complementary routine vehicle maintenance for low income individuals.  Each quarter we help clients, referred by social service agencies throughout Northern Kentucky, maintain their vehicles – and by extension, their livelihoods.

What We Do

  • Change engine oil

  • Replace air filters

  • Replace wiper blades

  • Replace bulbs

  • Top-off fluids

  • Inflate tires

  • Refer cars for repairs

    • (when funding is available)

Who We Are

Samaritan Car Care volunteers offer a lifeline to working poor families.  Our services enable these families to maintain their cars.  That allows them to access jobs and transport family members to school and health care appointments.

“This is a great service.  It is different than what others provide.  Others do the normal services like food, but changing my oil is so great because my car is important to me.  If I can’t get to my job, I can’t pay my bills.”

– Samaritan Car Care Clinic Participant

Samaritan Car Care Clinic volunteer Ethan Taylor and Clinic Director Bruce Kintner cleaning on a 2009 Nissan Cube. A family donated the Nissan to St. Vincent de Paul of Northern Kentucky, and the Clinic is working on doing repairs. Before passing along the car to a new owner in good mechanical order, the Clinic tries to get the donated vehicles into good cosmetic order as well. Beautiful day for washing and waxing! ...

Bruce looks like he's in the middle of an ice-skating move. I give him a 10 out 10 score. 😁 Seriously, nice job men and for a great cause.

Way to go Ethan!

Clinic volunteers Mike Truman and Alan Nguyen cleaned up a donated Chrysler Town and Country that went to a candidate from St. Vincent de Paul after repairs. Thank you all for your support! The Clinic wouldn't be able to help so many low-income families if it weren't for generous donors and volunteers. ... See MoreSee Less

Construction update: The masonry walls have been completed at the Samaritan Car Care Clinic site. Benco Construction has returned to the site and is actively building the cold-formed metal-framed walls around the exterior of the building. Horizontal metal siding and flashings and mezzanine deck structural steel materials were both received last week and are to be installed by Benco. Ryan’s All-Glass has field measured the door and window openings and is fabricating the aluminum fames now with glass due to be received late next week. We should see first floor windows begin to be installed late next week/early the week of the 10th. The overhead garage doors are being held in southeast Indiana, awaiting the site to be ready for installation. ... See MoreSee Less
