Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs and Christine Ann Domestic Abuse Services, INC. and the Jumpstart Board of Directors have made a hard and heavy decision to close Jumpstart permanently and put the business up for sale.
We are beyond grateful for all of you for supporting our business, for helping us spark change for survivors of domestic abuse, and for empowering women in the automotive industry.
Thank you for supporting and believing in our mission!

About JumpStart Auto Repair

In 2014, two domestic violence agencies came together to discuss a recurring problem. Too many domestic abuse victims were unable to leave an abusive relationship because they didn’t have the safe, reliable transportation they needed to get employment or education and become self-sufficient.

With that problem came an opportunity. The organizations learned 65% of auto repair decisions are made by women.

The idea for Jumpstart, LLC – a garage for good – was born.

A Garage for Good

JumpStart Auto Repair is an auto repair facility offering a purple carpet experience designed especially for female customers. Profits from each appointment are used to fund auto repairs for domestic violence survivors.

Step 1: Your car needs repairs or maintenance.
Step 2: You take your vehicle to JumpStart Auto Repair.
Step 3: Proceeds pay for the auto repairs of a domestic violence survivor.
Step 4: You give back and spark change. Step 2: A certified technician performs the service. You pay the bill.

How JumpStart is Different

As a garage for good, JumpStart is different in three ways:

  • Giving the Purple Carpet Treatment – Purple is a color of courage and creativity, and is the symbol of support for survivors of domestic violence. With our Purple Carpet Treatment, you can expect a warm personal experience, honest answers about your vehicle and the knowledge you are making a difference.
  • Sparking Change – Profits from our work help keep domestic abuse survivors on the road to self-sufficiency. Our educational workshops will help women feel more comfortable and confident about vehicle ownership.
  • Bringing More Women into Auto Repair Careers – Fewer than 10% of all auto repair technicians are women. JumpStart will help change that by introducing more women to these well-paying, family-supporting careers.
