ChangingGears | Resources for the Disabled in Northern Kentucky | Scoop.it
Center for Accessible Living NKY's insight:

"ChangingGears will provide access to affordable, private transportation by using a model to sell vehicles that is similar to the model used by Habitat for Humanity to sell houses. Vehicles will be sold to qualified clients at fair market value with a no interest loan. Rather than experiencing the entitlement that comes when resources are given and not earned, ChangingGears’ clients will be empowered on their journey to self-sufficiency through earned ownership by purchasing their vehicles."

Center for Accessible Living NKY's insight:

"For further information on any of the programs listed, please contact Ralph Bradburn, our Executive Director or call him at 859-341-3212 x 5.

SUMMER BREEZE PROGRAM: Many of our neighbors have to fight the heat of summer with no comfort of having a fan or air conditioner to help them. Cash donations made to SVdP NKY for this program are then used to purchase A/Cs and fans and are given to clients demonstrating a medical need for that assistance. Specific details on this program will be posted on this website from April through August.

COAT DONATION PROGRAM: with the assistance of Channel 5 and our other wonderful sponsors, every fall SVdP NKY promotes our coat donation program. The wonderful people of Northern Kentucky donate their gently used winter coats at one of our many drop-off locations. These coats are then distributed at our many distribution sites throughout Northern Kentucky. Specific details on this program will be posted on this website from September to December.

FOOD FROM THE HEART PROGRAM: with the assistance of The Kroger Company, Fox 19 TV and our other wonderful sponsors, SVdP NKY collects food gifts from our Northern Kentucky neighbors. This food is then given to those in need so they can enjoy a good Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Specific details on the program will be posted on this website in November and December.  

CHRISTMAS ADOPT-A-FAMILY PROGRAM: Many generous NKY businesses and families participate in this Christmas program by contacting our Executive Director, Ralph Bradburn. SVdP NKY finds a family in need and the participating donor receives the satisfaction of knowing that they put a smile on a child’s face on Christmas morning. Specific details on this program will be posted on this website in November and December."
