Funding for an accessible vehicle / conversion van
(Thornhill, ON Canada)
We just got word that we will be getting funding from March of Dimes ($15,000) towards an accessible vehicle.
However, because we have used President's Choice CC in the past, we cannot get help towards the cost of the vehicle itself and we cannot afford to take on the cost of a vehicle at the moment.
We are in a desperate situation. Any suggestions?
Do you know of any other charities that will help with the cost of the vehicle itself?
Hi Julie. It may be that your best bet is to look at used wheelchair vans. It may be able to meet your needs and get much, much closer to your budget for a handicap van.
You may have good luck in finding used wheelchair vans for sale at the same companies that offer wheelchair lifts for vans or the conversion vans themselves.
Let us know how you make out!
