As we honor and celebrate our Nation’s Veterans this week, MobilityWorks is proud to work with so many of these incredible heroes on a daily basis. With over 100 employed former members of the United States military working for MobilityWorks, we take great pride in providing accessible solutions for veteran’s and their families.
There are many resources, grants and organizations dedicated to helping these heroes when they return home from service, but it can be overwhelming to research all that is available. To assist you with this process, we have pulled together a list of the “Top 5 Veteran’s Benefits You May Not Know About”:
In celebration of Halloween, we thought that it would be the perfect time to catch up with one of the great organizations we have wrote about in the past, Magic Wheelchair. A few years ago we wrote a story about Magic Wheelchair, a non profit organization dedicated to making the most incredible costumes for kids in wheelchairs. Since that time, founders Ryan and Lana Weimer have worked with volunteers all across the country to create some of the coolest costumes we have ever seen!
Every October millions of children participate in neighborhood “Trick or Treating” across the country. Most communities do a fantastic job of providing additional safety and resources, however one thing that is often overlooked is the issue of accessibility. Here are 6 helpful tips that can help improve your child’s Halloween experience:
1) Look for Community Events – Travelling through neighborhoods can be difficult, especially when the weather is bad and people sit inside their homes with steps up to a door or front porch. Often times local churches or organizations will host indoor events or parking lot trick or treats where accessibility is easier. If your community doesn’t offer these type of events, now is a great time to start the conversation for next year.
