Two of our members have a daughter with special needs that require her to use a wheelchair. Transportation is difficult, so the daughter’s classmates started a GoFundMe and raised $8k for a wheelchair accessible van! However, these vans run $30k+, and the members didn’t think they could afford the rest. Heartland did its research on accessible van loans and worked hard on alternative financing methods that demonstrated that the members could afford the payment. They found an accessible van that met their daughter’s needs and drove across town just to show our staff.
