Sharing the Gift of Mobility
In developing nations across the world, an estimated 100 million children and adults with disabilities have no access to a wheelchair. Many are too weak to stand. Or too heavy to carry. Countless individuals crawl or inch their bodies across the ground. Others remain isolated indoors.
Gratefully, their health solution is simple and cost-effective. Right at Home partners with the humanitarian nonprofit Free Wheelchair Mission to extend the gift of mobility to people with disabilities in nearly 95 countries.
Mission Trip Ambassadors
From October 30 - November 4, 2017, Right at Home Salem and Marblehead joined the Free Wheelchair Mission on our first ‘Vision Trip’. We assisted with the building and distribution of wheelchairs in Costa Rica. We are delighted to have joined the FWM as ambassadors on this once in a lifetime experience.Click the image to see more of our unforgettable trip helping others in Costa Rica.

How to Partner with Us
We are delighted for the opportunity to roll up our sleeves with Free Wheelchair Mission and to provide the gift of mobility directly to recipients one wheelchair at a time.
As ‘Vision Trip’ ambassadors, we embrace our role as servants and welcome the chance to serve to those in need. It is an experience that will change our perspectives on poverty, disability, humanity at large and even perspectives of ourselves. We believe through this ‘Vision Trip’ we will ultimately live out the mission of Right at Home, to improve the quality of life for those we serve.
In order to raise awareness for the Free Wheel Chair Mission among our staff. We will be organizing a candy sale. We will be selling candy bars in each of our three local offices up until we leave for our ‘Vision Trip’ in October. The proceeds from the candy sale will go directly to the Free Wheel Chair Mission.
