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 using a shared-cost model 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, allowing 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

On Saturday, April 27, 2024, more than ten members of the Impact 100 Cincinnati philanthropy group gathered at the Samaritan Car Care Clinic to volunteer their time. One team added perennials to the plant beds and spread a new layer of mulch. A second team helped wash, sweep, and wax a donated van being held for a Brighton Center client. Repairs to that van are being covered by the Impact 100 grant provided to the Clinic in late 2023.

One huge thank you to Impact 100 members for their help. And a special thank you to Maddox Garden Center & Landscaping Inc. for providing a much welcomed discount on the mulch!

In-kind donations are an important way the Samaritan Car Care Clinic stretches financial donations to offer a hand up to families in need. Since 2007, Valvoline has graciously donated motor oil that the Clinic uses in its weekend volunteer led oil change events.

The Clinic now has four groups of volunteers that offer complementary oil changes for clients of Brighton Center, Ion Center, NorthKey, Gateway Community College’s Ready to Work program, Life Learning Center, and more. So those volunteers go through a lot of oil!

A huge thank you to Ryan Schultz (pictured loading some donated oil) and his team at Valvoline for helping the Samaritan Car Care Clinic address transportation barriers!
