Driven To Serve.
Without reliable transportation, it is difficult to get or maintain a job, and without a job, it is hard to maintain your independence and dignity. As one might imagine, transportation issues are huge in our community and the need is overwhelming. Unlike many bigger cities, people often can’t just take a bus to work, school, or appointments because our public transit system has limited hours and locations. Additionally, utilizing public transportation can take hours. This creates challenges when trying to get kids to daycare and get to work. It is especially challenging for single parents.
Fix It Forward Ministry (formerly Higher Power Automotive Ministries) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity located at Fix It Forward Auto Care in Fargo, ND. Our goal is to remove the transportation barrier for the most in need members of our community thus helping enable them to be independent and self-sufficient. This is accomplished in two ways. First by providing free car repairs to needy individuals, to help keep their vehicles on the road and safe. Second by repairing donated vehicles and giving them to needy members in our community who do not have a vehicle or whose vehicle is beyond repair. We utilize volunteer labor, discounted parts, and charitable donations to cover the costs of repairs.
We truly are Driven To Serve, both the in need and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Making a difference together.
Our three Fix It Forward Auto Care locations provide the shop space, equipment, and resources for our volunteers teams to work after business hours and on weekends. These amazing facilities give the Ministry more opportunity to help those in need and provides more opportunities for people to be involved in the mission.
With over 23,000 square feet of combined shop space, the growth possibilities for the ministry are huge. As the shops continue to prosper and grow, equipment will be added and updated and additional technicians will be hired. These additional resources will translate into a higher output of donated vehicles and repairs for the Ministry which ultimately means putting more needy people in our community back on the road to success.
Our name says it all! By being part of Fix It Forward Auto Care, you are "paying it forward" by enabling the Ministry to make an even bigger impact in our community.
A great group of folks doing great things to elevate the fallen (which is all of us as some time in life) who are working hard to help themselves.
