Through a business deal in April, Tim’s Auto Group and Stepping Stones worked together to provide HOPE to two families in our advocacy program with transportation. Transportation is a barrier for families in rural West Yavapai County communities because of limited options in public transportation. For some families, a vehicle can open doors for awesome growth and opportunity. After Stepping Stones received a donated newer, low mileage vehicle, our staff worked with Michael Soumokil at Tim’s Auto Group to trade for a family-ready van and small SUV. These two vehicles offered two families in our advocacy programs a hope-filled future. The opportunity for partnership was sparked at a Prescott Area Young Professionals’ networking mixer where Michael shared the company’s desire to work with community organizations. Thanks to Michael and Tim’s Auto Group for helping to bring hope to local families!
