Hello, I know that vocational rehabilitatioin can help you with that. They should. They provide transportation from home to work. You can tell vocational rehabilitation to work out a plan that you go to work and set aside money to get driving lessons and buy your car.
Tell your friend to talk to vocational rehabilitation. I agree that college is another way to find a job easier for your friend.
I know a lot of people want to work from home, but I never found any work from home that's legit or free. Even work like Avon or selling products require some investments to start up your business. With Avon or Mary Kay, you won't make money from selling itself, you have to find Avon reps. to become to sell for you to make any money.
Good luck, but tell your friend to be strong and try working at college or call Vocational Rehabiliation to help with transportation.
