Mission, Vision, and Values

The Lift Garage Vision 

As a thriving not-for-profit business, The Lift Garage offers quality, affordable auto repair for people who are on a path to a better future. 

Everyone connected with The Lift Garage is committed to respect to one another, to quality in our work, and a living wage for our employees. 

Our friendly and hospitable staff offer people excellent customer service. We stand behind our repairs and the skills of our staff.

Our well-kept garage and offices are furnished with the tools and equipment we need to do the job right.

As a locally owned business, we work hard to be a good neighbor. When we make decisions, we ask: What is best for the people involved? What is best for our community? What is best for the health of the planet?

We go the extra mile for customers. If a car repair is too big for us or a customer has another important need, we do our best to connect people with helpful resources in our community.

Each day, the people of The Lift Garage feel thankful. We know that, together, we are repairing not just cars, but lives: restoring hope and opportunity by helping people get to school and to jobs as an important step toward a more promising and secure future.

The Lift Garage Core Values 
In all we do, we hold ourselves to the highest standards. We are committed to continuous learning and improvement.
We recognize the dignity of all people. We offer others—and ourselves—patience, kindness, openness and forgiveness. We take responsibility for our actions.
We create and tackle chances to build a better life for our customers, co-workers, families, community and ourselves.  
We maintain the highest ethical standards with the people we serve, the environment, our community, and, with the larger world.
The Lift Garage Mission 
The Lift Garage offers people a vehicle out of poverty by:
  • Providing low-cost quality car repair;
  • Connecting with community partners to strengthen the support network; and
  • Linking customers to needed resources.
