In Vermont, 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.
Each state offers a unique set of benefits and services for its veterans and their families. The Office of Veterans Affairs is a state government organization that administers many of Vermont's veteran programs.
The Mission of the Vermont Assistive Technology Program is to increase awareness and knowledge, and to change policies and practices to ensure assistive technology is available through all services to Vermonters with disabilities.
Our Vision is that all individuals with disabilities receive the assistive technology they need and want, and that the benefits of assistive devices and technologies figure prominently in the minds of consumers, policy makers, and service providers. We seek to create a dependable, consistent system of service delivery that is consumer driven and consumer responsive.
Our Commitment is to enable Vermonters with disabilities to have greater independence, productivity, and confidence, and to provide Vermonters a clear and direct avenue toward integration and inclusion in school, the work force and the community.
