Marine Josh Himan overcame major injuries he suffered in Iraq, and went on to partner with Tammy Phipps, the Army therapist who helped him learn to drive again.

Together, these veterans are bringing more freedom to people with mobility challenges - like Marc Owens - through Driver Rehabilitation Center of Excellence.

BREAKING: PVA celebrates Congress passing the Veterans Auto and Education Improvement Act of 2022!

Once signed by the President, this legislation authorizes the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to provide an additional automobile grant NOW to who received their grant 30 years or more ago and will change the definition of “medical services” to include certain vehicle modifications like van lifts.

DARS is celebrating Older Driver Safety Awareness Week held each year in December because this is the time of year when families often come together for the holidays. One of the first steps in addressing older driver safety with a loved one is to create a safe space to discuss these changes and to create solutions that allow continued safe and independent driving. The Clearinghouse for Older Road User Safety (ChORUS) provides professionals and individuals with resources https://bit.ly/3FeGsCQ. DARS offers a variety of services to support older drivers https://bit.ly/3pvtg3A.

Helping Jojo Get Her Independence Back!, organized by Annette Zilker

Chevrolet Traverse + BraunAbility Wheelchair accessible conversion = Stunning vehicle for people with disabilities.

Add Driver Rehabilitation Center of Excellence + BraunAbility 6-Way Power Seat + Veigel GmbH + Co. KG distributed by Mobility Innovations and Q'Straint for wheelchair securement = Joanna's Dream Vehicle Black Widow.

We are so excited that Chevrolet New Roads Magazine reached out to us to feature disability / handicapped solutions on the Traverse Platform. When they contacted us, we knew exactly who they should highlight. https://www.chevrolet.com/new-roads/people/freedom-found

This story does a great job informing us about accessibility options, we'd like to add to this story and tell you about Joanna. She was in an accident last year in her wheelchair accessible vehicle and although she had insurance, it didn't come close to covering the adaptive / handicapped equipment costs. Joanna is an amazing person, a huge advocate for others, and we would like to advocate for her. With her permission we would like to share a GoFund Me link to help support the extraordinary costs associated with Black Widow. If you can help, please consider contributing to this campaign. https://www.gofundme.com/f/helping-jojo-get-her-independence-back?qid=b79f2ff188e7bbd6b5423efafcd2c8fa

We are so blessed to be part of this amazing mission! And be able to continue to serve our community of Service Members and Veterans!

For most of us, the freedom to run errands is something we take for granted. But for some injured veterans, it's an act of independence that isn't always possible. ​

We partnered with the Driver Rehabilitation Center of Excellence (DRCE) in Chantilly, VA in 2019 and launched our Drive For HOPE program – a comprehensive driving program designed to help injured service members and veterans get back on the road because our nation’s Warriors should not be limited by their ability to afford driving independence. ​

One of our first Drive clients was Army Veteran Jeff Cambre, who was referred to us by our partners at DRCE. Through our Drive For HOPE program, Jeff came to Virginia to work with HOPE and the DRCE team. While he was learning new driving skills, the DRCE team modified his truck with hand controls in lieu of foot pedals and other adaptive equipment to help him get in and out of his truck. After his training and vehicle modification, Jeff drove himself and his wife home to North Carolina. At that moment, Jeff’s world changed, and he was once again able to independently participate in daily activities such as driving to an appointment or taking his son to practice. ​

We are incredibly grateful to be a part of Jeff's story. This chapter in his life speaks volumes about his resilience and reflects the value of the program itself. ​

Happy Veterans Day! Today Wounded Warriors Family Support presented James Pistole a new mobility-equipped Ford F-150. Special thank you to the Driver Rehabilitation Center of Excellence for installing all the modifications needed to make this a safe and effective vehicle for James and his family!

James was severely injured in 2007, when he stepped on a secondary pressure plate Improvised Explosive Device (IED), while conducting a post blast analysis. He sustained amputation of his left leg, and severe trauma to his left arm, eventually his left triceps, latissimus muscle, half of his bicep had to be removed.
