About The Lift Garage

Your car isn’t just a way to go from one place to another. It symbolizes staying on the road to success.

The Lift Garage is a nonprofit aimed to move people out of poverty and homelessness by providing low-cost car repair, free pre-purchase car inspections, and honest advice that supports the community.

When longtime social worker Cathy Heying saw how transportation issues caused people to lose their jobs, which led to a loss of income and homelessness, she took action to fix the breaking point — literally. Rather than letting cost stand in the way, she became a mechanic. She then built a business provides car repair services nearly at cost. The goal? To keep people in their jobs and moving forward out of poverty.

Heying’s garage has provided affordable car repairs to hundreds of low-income families and individuals, saving them more than $500,000. More importantly, she and her organization are keeping people on the road to success.
