Here’s a look back at some of our clients who shared their stories with us this year!
Accessible Vehicle Allows Veteran to ‘Be There’ for His Family
After sustaining an injury while serving in Iraq, Randolph Stone was determined to maintain as much independence as he could back at home. For him, this meant figuring out a new way to drive. His resolve led him to learn how to drive with hand controls, opening a world of opportunity for adventure not only for himself but for his family as well. Click here to read Randolph’s story.
Don’t Miss the Big Picture!
As a 10-and-a-half-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Robert Corbett, of Virginia, has a passion for flight that endures despite suffering a spinal cord injury in 2016. He continues to share his passion with others by working with Wounded Eagle UAS, an organization that provides training to veterans interested in becoming FAA-certified commercial drone operators.

Worth the Wait!
For Megan Grannan, being able to drive her own car was a lifelong dream that all began with a Barbie Jeep when she was 2 years old. To her, driving meant she would not need anyone’s permission or help to get where she wanted to go, when she wanted to go. After years of hard work, she earned her driver’s license and received the keys to her first-ever accessible van! Click here to read about Megan’s journey to the steering wheel.

Big Surprise After Annual Trip to Dad’s Favorite Yogurt Shop
In many ways, the way we stayed connected to our loved ones in the past year changed drastically. In-person visits may have become phone calls, or annual vacations may have been postponed, but what never changed was the support that a community can bring. For one Las Vegas woman, a MobilityWorks rental appointment ended in the surprise of a lifetime thanks to her family, friends, and a lot of homemade keychains. Click here to read her story.
