ALERT: Vote for Paraquad throughout June in Regions Bank’s “What a Difference a Day Makes” contest

With your help, Paraquad provides its expert services for people with disabilities at low or no cost to ensure that everyone who needs help can get it.

  • Home modifications can be essential for people with new disabilities to navigate — and enter and exit — their homes. A small ramp to create wheelchair access to a home can cost about $2,500.
  • Replacement or repair of power wheelchairs can be extremely costly — batteries alone cost about $200.
  • Health and wellness matters for everyone, including people with disabilities and people with limited incomes. For $50, one person with limited income can utilize specialized equipment in Paraquad’s Health and Wellness Center for one month.
  • An outing to community attractions and activities can open doors for youths with disabilities. A day trip, including transportation, admission costs, and food/drink, averages about $35 per youth.
  • People with disabilities who transition from homelessness or institutions to their own apartment need essential household goods. A gift of $25 can provide a housewarming basket of plates and silverware.

With more than 80 percent of our participants living on incomes of less than $20,000, Paraquad relies on the generosity of our supporters to fund core services. Your gift can help to ensure accessibility to services that promote independence for people with disabilities.
