Local Right at Home Franchise Joins Free Wheelchair Mission
Members of Right at Home’s (www.rightathome.net) corporate team and eight U.S. franchisees recently returned from a trip to Costa Rica with their national partner, Free Wheelchair Mission. Together, the group assembled and delivered more than 35 wheelchairs to people in need to improve their quality of life with the transforming gift of mobility.
The Omaha-based franchise offers in-home companionship and personal care and assistance to seniors and adults with a disability who want to continue to live independently.
Right at Home is committed to improving the lives of people, locally and beyond, and the mission trip to Costa Rica was a great way to do just that.
The global Right at Home system raised enough money for three shipping containers, each filled with 550 unassembled wheelchairs. It costs approximately $80 to assemble, ship, and deliver one wheelchair; in total, the franchise system has raised $129,000 this year in their partnership with Free Wheelchair Mission.
Since its founding 16 years ago, Free Wheelchair Mission has provided approximately 1,028,387 wheelchairs. Free Wheelchair Mission is working now to provide its 2 millionth wheelchair by 2025.
