I'm not aware of any help in the area but have lived with ours for 5 years now and know it was worth every bit of the expense. At the time, we purchased a new vehicle and Dodge offered $1000 to help outfit it with accessiblity. Don't know if the offer is still in place.

I am getting ready to sell our van which is awesome. It is a Town and Country that was outfitted by Freedom Motors in Battle Creek Michigan. It is a rear load with no mechanical parts. However it will only has two extra seats in back so will only do person in wheelchair, 3 passengers and the driver.
I just interviewed the CEO of Easter Seals here and she said the loan program they have for vans doesn't qualify very many people but it might be worth a try.

How about a fund raiser? My sister has a friend who's son was shoot in the back and he is in his late 20's, all her friends had a fundraiser and posted on f.b. in the invites and from what i was told it was a great success. They also set up an account at a bank and posted on f.b. how to go about donating to the cause. Just an idea

I have a 2004 dodge van that is handicapped accessible and i couldnt find any help, i have paid on that thing for 7 years and i have 3 more to go!!!!!!!! I had no choice and had to have the van, daughter is in a power wheelchair that weighs 388 lbs all by itself, without her in it. If there is some sort of help i would looove to hear about it, I am a single mom and have had NO help with this purchase. Good luck!!

thank you.....I have heard of a grant you can get for special vans' I just dont know where to look. We have 4 kids ages 5, 4, 3, and 8mo. and our little mini van with only one side door isnt working so well. the 3 yr old has a trash so an adult always have to sit next to him, and that backs the back vevy crowded. thanks for you help.
