Amy Miller is a very happy 14-year old girl riding in her new mobility van. The purchase of the van was made possible through the Martin Rajkovich Children’s Fund, a fund of the Community Foundation for San Benito County dedicated to improving the quality of life for special needs children living in San Benito County.
This is the first modified vehicle the family has ever owned, and couldn’t have come at a better time for the Miller family, as getting around town for the simplest of errands was becoming a daunting task in their current SUV. Amy’s mother had to physically lift her in and out of the vehicle, creating physical strain on both mother and daughter. They needed an easy access vehicle that allowed Amy to remain safely in her wheelchair, and the van was the perfect solution.
The Foundation thanks Tiffany Ford Motor Company for spearheading the efforts in locating the specially designed vehicle, for their full safety inspection, and their help in making the family’s dream a reality.
