Mobility Is Freedom

Mobility is Freedom

Wounded Warriors Family Support launched Mobility is Freedom in 2015 to provide grants and modified vehicles for combat-wounded veterans.  The program aims to enhance the quality of life for wounded veterans by providing freedom and independence in their everyday lives.  We believe that given a properly equipped vehicle for their individual needs they will have freedom to live a productive and quality life with their family.  These vehicles are specifically adapted to suit Veterans who are disabled due to combat operations.

The following are some of the eligibility requirements for the ($30,000.00) vehicle grant: Loss of limb, spinal cord injury, or salvage limb injury due to combat operations.  In addition, the veteran must have been approved for VA automobile allowance and adaptive equipment benefits.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 402-932-7036.

Microsoft Give Campaign for WWFS

Wounded Warriors Family Support is incredibly grateful to the Microsoft Employee Giving Program.  Microsoft’s Giving Campaign matches employee donations of time and money to nonprofit organizations, up to $15,000 a year per employee.  Every year their employees come together and raise funds for organizations across the nation.

In 2021, Microsoft employees raised funds using a combination of live presentations and virtual campaigns.  27 Scholarships were awarded to JROTC students and two Ford trucks were presented to two very deserving combat-wounded veterans, SPC Maggie Mae Bilyeu and SFC Scott Alan Adams Sr.   We are thankful for their generosity and passion to help our nation’s combat-wounded veteran families.  You can learn more about the 2021 #DriveTheJourney campaign here.

In 2020, Covid-19 stopped the campus visits, but Microsoft Employee Giving continued.  You can learn about our partnership’s 2019 donation to the Makah Tribe based in Neah Bay in Washington State here.

High Five Tour

The High Five Tour is our annual push to drive awareness for our organization and programs.  The vehicles many times showcase some of the mobility equipment that disabled veterans use to safely enter and operate the vehicle.  The High Five Tour was put on hold during Covid-19 but is back in 2022!  You can learn more about the High Five Tour at highfivetour.com.
