With so many families struggling and in need of Handicap Accessible Vans to care for their families medical needs. I decided to go on a mission to find resources to help them. Below is what I have found along my journey and I hope that it will offers some assistance to a family in need.
The Special Kids Fund gives donated vans to families with disabled children.
A family must qualify for the program based upon financial need.
For more information, email info@SpecialKidsFund.org or call (732) 397-5056.
Midwest Mobility offers donated handicap vans and other similar vehicles to needy families throughout the states of Illinois and Wisconsin. If you live in Illinois, call (800) 809-3738.
Those in Wisconsin should call (866) 520-8267.
Another way to get help is through a government grant.
The United States government has many grants available for obtaining financial assistance to meet the needs of disabled individuals. Many of these grants are available to private citizens and can be used for purchasing mobility equipment, including handicapped vans. While certain requirements may need to be met to establish eligibility, these grants can provide a lot of help and possibly make the research effort worth while.
Contact nearby churches. They should be a good source of information for local charities that might have a free wheelchair van available for you. Church officials could have the inside track on a member looking to directly donate a vehicle to a needy person or family.
Blessings To All
