Mobile Kids Foundation was founded in 2004 by a group of charitable businessmen who believe that all child amputees and those with physical limitations deserve the chance to grow up and lead fully productive lives regardless of their financial circumstances.
Working alongside the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, as well as various urban and suburban support groups, Mobile Kids identifies children who meet specified health and financial criteria and works with their families to provide mobile equipment at no charge. This philanthropic organization provides not only prosthetic equipment, but also wheelchairs and other devices that give children more freedom and greater control in any environment.
Once needy children are identified and approved, Mobile Kids will work with medical equipment suppliers within the geographic territory of the individual. While the program currently serves only those children in southeastern Michigan, it will soon be expanded to serve children all over the United States.
Mobile Kids provides other important services for children beyond mobility issues. It also works with various support groups to offer financial assistance to shelters in an effort to provide shelter for needy families with children. Also, the foundation gives funds to urban center schools for families to send their children to school.
An exciting upcoming development within Mobile Kids includes the development of a summer camp designed specifically for physically challenged children. The camp would be built using federal and state handicap codes with the objective of providing the same type of summer camp activities that are enjoyed by children without physical limitations. Some of these activities would include: nature walks, swimming, sports, camp fires and more. The camp will be based in Michigan’s lower peninsula and staffed by members who will coordinate activities and work with campers on a daily basis.
