Wheelchairs 4 Kids provides wheelchairs, home and vehicle modifications as well as other assistive and therapeutic devices for children that have limited mobility due to illness, accident or abuse.  It is our goal to allow all kids to participate in life fully.  Following is a list of 4 areas that they address:

Wheelchairs – The most popular request.  Wheelchairs 4 Kids provides new or nearly new wheelchairs for children who have outgrown their current equipment or need a chair with more features and support as their abilities deteriorate due to one of the myriad of progressive diseases that afflict our children.  

 Vehicle Modifications – Wheelchairs 4 Kids provides wheelchair ramps for vans and SUV’s that meet certain criteria.  Seats must be removable and the vehicle cannot have automatic sliding doors.  The parent or guardian must own the vehicle or provide a notarized letter from the owner permitting the modification.

Home Modifications – Wheelchairs 4 Kids provides some home modifications such as ramps, door widening, grab bars, etc.  Each home modification is evaluated on a case by case basis dependant on the structure of the home.  The parent or guardian must own the home or provide a notarized letter from the owner permitting the modification.

Assistive Devices– Wheelchairs 4 Kids provides a myriad of other assistive devices such as hoyer lifts, gait trainers, bathing solutions, etc.
