Wheelchairs 4 Kids

Wheelchairs 4 Kids is dedicated to improving the lives of children with physical disabilities by providing wheelchairs, home and vehicle modifications as well as other assistive and therapeutic equipment to children with physical disabilities at no charge to the families.

Wheelchairs 4 Kids provides wheelchairs, home and vehicle modifications as well as other assistive and therapeutic equipment to children with physical disabilities at no charge to the families. We also have an inclusion program called "Wheely Fun Days" that gets our kids out in the community to enjoy activities such as attending baseball games, going behind the scenes at the Grand Prix to meet the drivers, or even meeting Winter the Dolphin up close and personal!  We even took them water-skiing using adaptive equipment!  Many of our kids are isolated socially.  It is our goal to increase awareness that they share the same hopes and dreams as their able-bodied friends and like to discuss the same topics whether it be sports, movies or even celebrity crushes! 

Many children living with physical disabilities are in wheelchairs that are too small, in disrepair, or do not fit the needs of the child. Children outgrow their wheelchairs before government or insurance programs will allow for a replacement - on average 5 years! Not only is it unsafe for a child to be in a chair that is inadequate for their needs, but it can impact their health in numerous ways including scoliosis, respiratory problems and pressure sores. In addition, families are faced with trying to care for their special needs children in homes that have not been modified to meet their specific circumstances. Imagine trying to lift your teenager in and out of bed or a bathtub without assistive devices or a modified bathroom. Picture a child in a home where they can't get upstairs. Wheelchairs 4 Kids is prepared to address this much neglected need. But we can't do it without you.

Wheelchairs 4 Kids is meeting the needs of physically disabled children and their families.  We have become the "go to" agency of physical therapists, the MDA, UCP, Children's Medical Services and other advocacy groups for mobility challenged youth.   We desperately need the help of caring organizations like yours to provide the needed equipment and modifications that are essential for our kids to be safe and thrive.

Please take a moment and visit our website at www.Wheelchairs4kids.org.  You can see our financials there in the "About" drop down menu.  We are very proud that over  80% of all funding goes into programs - not administrative costs.  We also invite you to become a fan of our Facebook page and subscribe to ourYouTube Channel. 

Thank you so much for your consideration. We hope that our mission is worthy of your support and the children we serve deserving of your participation. If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me at 727-946-0963. Thank you so much!
