Local Client Giving Back to Community

22 08 2012

We here at Advantec are proud to support one of our loyal clients, AMBUCS. AMBUCS is a non-profit service organization consisting of a diverse group of men and women who are “dedicated to creating mobility and independence for people with disabilities.”

There are three ways in which this amazing organization gives back. The first is through various forms of community service. This program is known as the AmBility program- a name that combines AMBUCS and Mobility. This program was adopted in 1998 and is focused on equipment and processes. One of the projects in this program is the AmTryke Project. AMBUCS chapters have provided more that 6,000 trykes to children with disabilities. Another project is the Ramp Building project. Members and volunteers build ramps to create accessible homes and businesses. The third project in this program is the Accessible Playgrounds project. Building and refurbishing playgrounds that can be used by children with disabilities. It involves adding universal usage playground equipment or building an entirely new playground.

The second program that Ambucs offers is the AmTryke program. Mentioned earlier, this program distributes trykes to children with disabilities. What is interesting is that these trykes are specially made to be powered by using your hands instead of your feet, so those with disabilities have no problem riding one just like a child should! So far, over 15,300 AmTrykes have been distributed around the world. A majority of the trykes are purchased by volunteer members of the AMBUCS organization and donated to those who would not otherwise have one.

The third program AMBUCS offers is the Scholarship Award Program for therapists. In the 2012-2013 school year alone, AMBUCS awarded over $150,000 in scholarships. Image

This amazing organization is located right in our own backyard in High Point, North Carolina. We are proud to support an organization that does so much for the community and helps so many people!
