RESOURCES FOR COMPASSION

Ethan is a young man living with cerebral palsy who works at the San Antonio Zoo.

When Ethan started his job at the zoo, the pathways were difficult for him to navigate while walking and the length of the zoo itself made it difficult for Ethan to get around. Ethan needed a power chair to be able to efficiently do his job.

However, getting a power chair through Medicaid could take several months. Ethan’s friends and coworkers knew that for Ethan to be able to stay at the job he loved, he couldn’t wait that long so they reached out to Project MEND.

We were able to help Ethan right away. We found a power chair that suited his needs and soon he was able to move about the zoo and interact with the guests and his coworkers in comfort.

Donations from people like you helped make this story possible.
