Car Ministry Program

City Union Mission’s Car Ministry Program provides reliable cars to program graduates.  Qualified candidates will receive a dependable car and assistance maintaining that car for a year, provided recipients continue to live by program guidelines.

Car donations made by individuals and businesses provide the majority of the vehicles distributed by the Car Ministry Program. In addition, the Mission also purchases cars with designated financial donations.

Please consider donating a used car in good working condition or funds to purchase cars for the Car Ministry Program. Each car donated is an opportunity to give a struggling neighbor the chance at a new life.

To make a donation or to learn more about the Mission’s Car Ministry Program and other comprehensive programs for the homeless and hurting, contact us at (816) 841-6171.

For a vehicle to be eligible for donation:

1.  The car must be in good working condition.
2.  It must have clear title and a lien release (when necessary).
3.  All the owners’ names on the title must be signed on the reverse of the title authorizing transfer of ownership, at the time of donation.

You will receive a bill of sale and the form you need for tax filing purposes.

If the vehicle is located in the Kansas City metropolitan area, we can even pick it up and complete the paperwork on the spot.

Most graduates don’t have the financial ability to purchase their own vehicle and this is our way of setting them up for success once they leave the Mission.  Here are a few of those program graduates who were blessed with receiving a car.
