The Steelman Mobility Foundation was established to assist families with children 6-18 that are completely non-ambulatory and wheelchair bound, purchase wheelchair accessible vehicles and other Mobility Equipment.
WHY IS SFF IMPORTANT?
Currently, if you googled, Go Fund Me pages for families looking for assistance with a child with cerebral palsy, you will find over 4 million. The average cost of an accessible van is over $40,000. That is not a fancy tricked out car. That is a mom car, that is the dreaded min-van. That is a basic mini-van. It’s as if you buy the car twice. First you must consider the cost of the car, then modifications will usually cost at least $28,000.
HOW DOES THE GIVING FUND WORK?
Steelman Mobility Foundation applicants must meet with a mobility dealership to determine the vehicle that will work best for their family and their child’s needs. Steelman Mobility Foundation then, through the support of generous corporate and individual donors, and by partnering with other non-profits, will provide a grant to help the family purchase their accessible van. All funds go directly to the dealership that the vehicle is being purchased through.
