We’re not sending you a holiday card this year and
here is why….
On any given night in Grand Rapids, there are youth with no safe place to go and no stability. They’re forced to make decisions that allow them to survive tonight rather than thrive tomorrow.  
Ervine’s Auto Repair and Grand Rapids Hybrid are committed to ensuring that these youth know the community cares about them. For the holiday season, we are preparing stockings for as many members as we can (175 is our goal)
and we need your help to make this possible.
What is HQ?

HQ is a Grand Rapids drop-in center for youth ages 14 thru 24 who are experiencing unsafe or unstable housing.

HQ was created to help young people find a place to rest, obtain resources and connections, and receive support thru professional skill building.  HQ exists as a transformative space where everyone is included and diversity is celebrated.

Services offered at HQ: meals, showers, laundry, basic need items and clothing, employment & educational services, housing crisis support, computer lab available for online school courses, homework, job searches & resume development,  art projects and networking.
After speaking with the folks at HQ, we came up with a list of items that would be helpful and appreciated.   We have a lofty goal of gifting 175 complete stockings to the youth of HQ and would love for you to show your care and come along side us this holiday season.

  • Chelsea Vives:
    Awesome service!! They were extremely helpful and friendly! I loved how they were accommodating to the customers and being very organized with after hours drop-offs and pick-ups. They were also very quick with fixing my car which was great.

    Andy Krafft:
    Ervine's has provided great service for me throughout my college years! They do their best to make time for customers and understand the importance and value in quality service. Would definitely recommend!

    Erin O'Brien-Jenison:
    The staff is very friendly. The technicians take the time to explain repairs in detail. The loaner car service is very convenient for my family. Each of my experiences with Ervine's has been very positive.

  • Jamie Riehle:
    My car needed a lot of work and being relatively new to the area, I had to rely on online reviews. Ervine's got great feedback, so I made an appointment through their website. I was contacted almost immediately and scheduled very quickly. The repairs took a few days, but with the free loaner it was no big deal. They explained everything to me, helped me prioritize which repairs to do first, and Jamie even entertained my 5-year-old while I spent 10 minutes on the phone with my bank to get my payment to go through. I may have been able to find someplace a little cheaper, but you can't pay for the excellent customer service at Ervine's. The lobby is clean, has fresh coffee, and is very professional. As a woman I've been intimidated going into car shops but I never felt that way at Ervine's. I'll definitely be returning.

    I had a great experience at Ervine's. I know very little about my car beyond turning it on, so I was relieved when the staff were willing to spend extra time explaining to me exactly what is going on and helping me to be an informed consumer. I also appreciated that they are not trying to sell something-- I did not actually need the repair that the dealership had told me to IMMEDIATELY deal with, and the folks at Ervine's were willing to tell me that when they could have made a buck doing the repair. The visit was so painless I even got to run errands while I was waiting using one of their fabulous loaner cars. Thank you so much!
