BENEFITING: LIFEHOUSE INC
EVENT DATE: Feb 20, 2018
Wheelchair accessible vans provide safe, reliable transportation for wheelchair users who want greater freedom and independence. Getting in and out of a non-accessible vehicle can put both the wheelchair user and the caretaker at risk for injury.
Lifehouse has 3 homes with a total of 18 residents that each require a wheelchair accessible van for transportation for their everyday life. Lifehouse also provides services to another 5 individuals who live out in the community and require transportation from a wheelchair accessible van. Currently, Lifehouse has one fully functional van and two that are worn and need to be replaced. Please help us raise funds to purchase a NEW Wheelchair Van. Donate by the end of the year to receive tax advantages.
The van must be replaced with a fully functioning vehicle in order to fulfill the needs of the people served by Lifehouse. Power wheelchair vans with lifts and transfer seating options reduces the risk of injury while getting in and out of the vehicle. With wheelchair tie-downs and in-floor ramps, a wheelchair accessible van provides the added safety needed to keep the people we serve safe on the road and able to go out in the community like everyone else.
