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

Who We Help

The Samaritan Car Care Clinic works on a referral basis with Northern Kentucky social service agencies to help low-income families with car repairs.  Repairs are done on a shared cost basis with the goal of helping the families get to their jobs and stay on the path to self-sufficiency.

What We Do

  • Change engine oil

  • Replace air filters

  • Replace wiper blades

  • Replace bulbs

  • Top-off fluids

  • Inflate tires

  • General car repairs

    • (when funding is available)

Who We Are

The Samaritan Car Care Clinic offers a lifeline to working poor families.  Our services enable these families to maintain their cars, to allow 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.”

CLINIC ON THE AIR!

On Saturday morning, December 23, Clinic Director Bruce Kintner was a guest of Car Tech radio show host Wes Adams. The program airs most Saturday mornings on local radio station WDJO between 10-11AM.

Wes heard about the Samaritan Car Care Clinic, met with Director Kintner in November, and decided he wanted to offer his listeners a chance to hear about the Clinic. Wes shared on the air that he was raised by a single mom, so he absolutely understands the stress of juggling rent, groceries, and car repair bills. Many thanks to Wes Adams of Ulmer’s Auto Care and the Car Tech Show, and WDJO for letting the Clinic share about the great work we do!

Bruce is such a great guy 😊

Samaritan Car Care Clinic volunteers held a maintenance event this past Saturday, 12.09.2023. The appointments slots were filled with referrals from Ion Center for Violence Prevention, Brighton Center, Life Learning Center, and Gateway Community College’s Ready to Work program for single parents.

We were very fortunate to have had a great group of volunteers, so oil changes, tire pressure checks, bulb replacements and more all went smoothly. A frustration was seeing several cars with severe corrosion.

Thank you for your continued support!

On Saturday, December 2, 2023, a Gateway Community and Technical College automotive instructor named Richard Clark and four students from his classes led a complementary maintenance event specifically for low-income Gateway students who struggle with the cost of car maintenance. The event was held at the Samaritan Car Care Clinic shop in Covington. The Clinic celebrates its connection with Gateway Community and Technical College!

Photos include students Gabe, Lee, Josie and Noah who all helped with the event. Yet another way the Samaritan Car Care Clinic collaborates with Gateway Community and Technical College.
