In South Carolina, there are different agencies and non-profits that have various programs designed to help people in need of adaptive driving equipment or wheelchair transportation. Below are just some of the more prominent groups that we have been able to identify in helping our website visitors with finding financial assistance.
It is our wish that every American who needs assistance can find the help they need. If you know of additional resources, please let us know. We will be glad to add organizations that are helping the disabled community or our special needs families with grant opportunities. If you have any questions, contact MobilityWorks today.
