Where we work

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

We aim to improve the lives and wellbeing of as many mobility-challenged children and young adults as we can. By providing free, medically-correct wheelchairs these candidates can attend school, use public transportation, be included in the community functions, and achieve their maximum potential.

By engaging ourselves in community groups and councils that are in the Special Needs realm, we will make our services and programs known to hospitals, clinics, school boards, and among therapists to increase our impact in our communities.

We have the dedicated volunteers to drive our participation in outreach and social groups to make ourselves known. We are partnered with two of the largest medical equipment providers to offer timely responses to all requests for mobility equipment. Their professional staff conduct the assessments and evaluations of the clients and recommend the correct equipment based on the individual candidate's condition.

Chariots Of Love will recognize the impact of our programs and services as we reach a wider audience of candidates through hospitals, therapists, clinics, and schools, and receive repeat clients as the grow out of their current wheelchairs. We are a strong business partner with the largest special needs school in Palm Beach County and look to see more of our candidates continuing their education and involvement in their communities

As of March 2019, we have provided 87 free wheelchairs in six states with 81 of those going to mobility-challenged children in South Florida. In late 2017 we launched a new program offering wheelchair repairs and accessories to our clients that may not need a new wheelchair but rather repairs or accessories.
