As part of our overall giveback to the community, St. Louis Community is proud to offer the Sure Rides® Auto Loan program. Introduced in spring 2014, Sure Rides was designed to help qualified, low-income, credit-challenged clients of workforce development agencies get to work by giving them access to affordable car loans.
We make it our business every day to provide affordable car loans to qualified hardworking people who might not otherwise have access to reliable transportation. What sets Sure Rides apart is our commitment to extending our hand into the community to people directly engaged in career development through workforce development agencies and other partners.
Oftentimes, people may have the capacity and skill to work, but they cannot get to a job regularly because they don’t own a car. Additionally, long-term unemployment and diminished personal credit can prevent many people from obtaining car loans. This creates a losing situation for both employees and employers, thus dragging down our regional economy. That’s why we participate with our workforce development partner groups to help bridge this gap.
If you obtained your job through one of the following partners and qualify for St. Louis Community membership, you’re eligible to apply for a Sure Rides Auto Loan.
