By training people seeking employment in the automotive field

Helping those in need get into a safe and reliable vehicle


New Location and New Name

On January 1, 2016, we opened our doors in Tualatin and have been blessed to train over 18 individuals seeking employment in the automotive field, and helped over 75 families who have demonstrated a need for reliable transportation but whose varying financial circumstances prevented them from getting their vehicles up and running.

In 2020, we provided over $40K in benevolent care and vehicle placements, continuing to increase our provisions to those in need, thanks to many generous donations

In Spring 2021, we have successfully re-located to Oak Grove in South East Portland. Our new location is ideally situated to allow interns easier daily access by public transport, and is situated close to many automotive service shops for future transition into the industry. The location has been set up to focus on our automotive training on donated vehicles that will be repaired and certified for re-sale, and support our mission to provide benevolent service car through our partners.

With this location change, the organization changed its name to Auto-Tek Workforce Development. This name reflects primary mission of training people seeking employment in the automotive field.
