Story Behind the Curve

Evaluations are conducted with vehicle recipients 6-months after receipt of their vehicle and again 12-months after receipt. As a result, there is a slight lag in our data reporting.


Wheels for Work is a collaborative program for which United Way of Story County functions as backbone agency and fiscal agent. This is an inventive solution to the persistent transportation barriers in our county. Other partners include:

  • Ames Ford - Accepts donated vehicles into the program to be given a safety inspection and repaired.
  • ACCESS, Central Iowa Community Services, Mid-Iowa Community Action, and The Salvation Army - Take applications and work directly with the clients on details to receive a vehicle.
