Houston Children's Charity gives families wheelchair-accessible vans

These brand-new vans provided by Houston Children's Charity allow these families to finally have a way to get their loved ones out into the world. It's a difficult task now made much easier.

HOUSTON - For more than a dozen families in need, Christmas came early in the form of wheelchair-accessible vans.

The Houston Children's Charity has a program called Chariots for Children. Twice a year, they give out wheelchair accessible vans to families who need them.

On Monday, they handed out car keys to 13 families like Samelle Holman's, whose son, Joshua, lives with cerebral palsy, scoliosis and epilepsy.

“Now he can travel, and he's legally blind, and it’s like Josh, we couldn't go nowhere without this van. We're so happy," Holman said.

The brand-new vans allow these families to finally have a way to get their loved ones out into the world. It's a difficult task now made much easier.

"It’s a life changer,” Ashley Morin said. “Yes, it’s going to change our lives forever,” she said.

Her son Robert lives with cerebral palsy and hydrocephalus. He’s 7 years old.

There were three sponsors who wrote big checks to buy the vans: Tony Buzbee, the Marsh Family and the Valero Foundation.

The Houston Children's Charity does this twice a year, and folks there say more and more families are in need every year.
