Wounded Warriors Family Support’s Mobility is Freedom program is proud to announce a new partnership with the EOD Warrior Foundation and Driver Rehabilitation Center of Excellence.
“We believe our partnership with the EOD Warrior Foundation and the Driver Rehabilitation Center of Excellence will enhance the quality of life of the six wounded veterans by providing freedom and independence in their everyday lives,” Wounded Warriors Family Support CEO and President Kate McCauley said. “Our belief is that given a properly equipped vehicle for their individual needs, they will have the freedom to live a productive and quality life with their family.”
Wounded Warriors Family Support will purchase six Ford vehicles and grant them to Purple Heart veterans during 2021. The EOD Warrior Foundation will identify the veterans. The Driver Rehabilitation Center of Excellence will address the mobility needs of each recipient and work with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for the adaptive equipment grant.
“We are thrilled to be working with Wounded Warriors Family Support and Driver Rehabilitation Center of Excellence on this wonderful initiative that will dramatically impact the lives of six EOD warriors and their families,” EOD Warrior Foundation Executive Director Nicole Motsek said. “We are grateful for the opportunity to support these deserving warriors who put their lives on the line doing incredible and lifesaving work every day in the EOD field.”
