With a grant from the City of Hesperia, we were able to supply Karen with a brand new Rollator. She called back a week later to thank us again and was ecstatic and surprised by how much her life had improved due to her new assistive technology.
“Helping Karen maintain her independence was like getting a $1 raise!”
-Cathy, our Assistive Technology Specialist
The consumer’s mother came to Rolling Start looking for assistance in obtaining a car seat for her 11-year-old son who has cerebral palsy and pica, which made it hard for the mother to find a car seat suitable to his disability. After reaching out to multiple agencies and being unsuccessful to find anyone willing to cover the cost or lower the $1500+ price she felt hopeless and uneasy of her current situation which consisted of zip tying her son into a car seat not intended for someone of his size. Thankfully while at an Abilities Expo, Rolling Starts independent living specialist was able to advocate for the consumer and collaborated with an amazing company Inspired by Drive who provided the consumer with a car seat of her choice at an exceptionally affordable price.
