More than transportation, these vans ensure these individuals receive proper medical care, meaningful outings/activities in the community and allow them to maintain relationships with family and friends.
Community Living North Halton currently has 5 wheelchair vans to service our entire client population (residential, children’s services and day programs in Georgetown, Milton and Acton). Unfortunately, we are in a critical situation and need to replace one wheelchair accessible van now. Our 2006 Uplander has +200,000 kms, no heat, sever rust at the side ramp and is just too expensive to maintain. This is followed by two more wheelchair accessible vans which are also in a crucial state.
The cost to purchase a new integrated, accessible transportation vehicle is $70,214.00.
The problem is…..we don’t have $70,214.00
Misty, Nancy, Andrew and Adam’s hope is that the community where they live, work and play will contribute to “help get our motor running” in a safe, reliable wheelchair accessible van.
Many thanks in advance! Your kindness is greatly appreciated!
