Meet Clifford

"Having my own transportation meant I was able to join a program for veterans and train for a permanent, full-time position." – Clifford Carter

"Without the automobile I received from Goodwill Wheels to Work, I have no idea what I’d be doing." – Clifford Carter

Full time commute made possible by Wheels to Work Army veteran Clifford Carter, 49, obtained his gold Hyundai Accent through Goodwill Industries’ Wheels to Work program in 2009. Carter lives in Battle Creek and works in building maintenance for Medallion Management in Kalamazoo. It’s a job he’s held since April 2011, and trained for in a six-month program – also in Kalamazoo – through the Veteran’s Administration. Neither his training nor his job opportunity would have been feasible without reliable transportation.

Carter was referred to Wheels to Work by the Michigan Rehabilitation Services, and took possession of his gold four-door within 60 days of application.
