We aim to purchase an accessible van for our community in 2018. Help us reach our $62,000 goal!
Several of our friends in our L'Arche homes experience significant mobility challenges which affects seating and transfers into our current vans. This is a safety concern for both our friends with disabilities and for assistants who are helping with transfers. Our vans are counted on daily for appointments, errands, volunteer activities, get-togethers with friends and family, and community excursions. Adding an accessible vehicle for our homes will allow chair-users to wheel directly into the vehicle and will increase the number of preferential seating positions so all of our community can travel together to events in Portland and throughout the Pacific Northwest.
We are thrilled to announce a $15,000 lead gift towards our $62,000 goal from Monica Ranaghan and Sara Sawicki. Can you help us raise the rest and make this van a reality for 2018?
