Chris Williams is living the American dream. Six years ago he started repairing cars in his spare time, and now he owns his own garage. But Williams isn't making a cent from his business.
Neither are any of the hardworking mechanics who repair cars in his shop. That's because Williams calls all the work they do at his charity, God's Garage, "an investment from the heart."
The idea for this unique charity came to Williams, a former pastor, when he was driving home from church one day. He pulled over to give a lift to a single mother and her child, who were walking home from the service. It turned out their car needed repairs, and they couldn't afford to fix it.
Williams says he's always loved to help people, so he decided to do what he could for that single mother by fixing the car. Soon he was fixing cars for more single mothers. After spending years as a small-time operation, God's Garage took a huge step forward this year.
