This organization’s mission is to improve its clients’ quality of life and health by providing wheelchairs and mobility equipment not funded by Medicare, Medicaid or insurance. Its programs include: loaners, budget assistance, support network and music outreach. It states that 75% of the elderly and disabled, including those seriously overweight (250 pounds to obese), suffer from serious depression which impacts them as much as their disability.
Wheelchairshelp.org believes it can serve the 30% underserved through the purchase of five new wide transport wheelchairs via subsidized pricing.
