It’s not just a car. It’s a lifeline to the future.

At any given time in South Carolina there are foster youth between the ages of 18 and 21 who are employed and/or attending college. As they age out of the system, one of the greatest challenges they face is transportation to work and school. Your donation of a used car or truck will give a deserving young adult the opportunity for independence and a chance to become a successful and productive adult. To donate your vehicle or to make a donation to help with repairs contact Brian Marion at 803-665-9225,

On the Road Again is a program of the South Carolina Foster Parent Association which provides donated cars to foster care youth who are at least 18 and not yet 21 years old, actively employed, pursuing a GED or engaged in a post-high school educational program.
