By Car Helps Student

posted 4/2/24 -- Joshua Franklin will be driving his 2005 Hyundai Elantra to work and school.

Joshua purchased his car through the LCCAA By Car program after learning about the supportive program of OhioMeansJobs Lorain County when OMJ visited his school. Without a car of his own, he depended on family members and friends for transportation.

By Car matched Joshua’s savings at the rate of $3 for every $1 Joshua earned. He was also eligible for help with his first year of car insurance.

“It’s a great learning experience,” he said, encouraging others to try the program. “They help out a ton.”
