Services for Individuals

Freedom Wheels staff is committed to providing high quality products and services to persons with disabilities. Our goal is to promote independence and choice for individuals with disabilities. Our services include in-home assessments. Staff is available to visit homes to identify and assess barriers to independence and help determine what is needed to allow people to remain at home, "age in place" and access and experience their communities.

Freedom Wheels modifies vehicles and homes; and provides equipment, including wheelchairs, so individuals with disabilities can have access to transportation, work, employment, entertainment and all aspects of society.

Through the Independent Living Services Program (ILS) offered by the Houston, Brazoria and Fort Bend Centers for Independent Living Freedom Wheels can provide vehicle modifications and other services for persons with disabilities. The ILS program is funded by Texas Health and Human Services to provide services that "... help people with disabilities achieve greater independence in the home and community."
