This past summer, the National Association of American Veterans (NAAV) joined in partnership with MobilityWorks and BraunAbility at a special ceremony to honor a disabled US military Veteran with a 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT equipped with a BraunAbility XT conversion.

NAAV President and CEO Constance A. Burns, along with Matt Swope, BraunAbility Director of Sales Eastern United States, and Chris Paczak, MobilityWorks Vice President of Marketing, had the proud honor of presenting this assisted mobility van to Retired Navy Veteran Charlie Johnson and his wife and caregiver, Lola Johnson, of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, at the NAAV Corporate Office located at 1725 I Street NW, in Washington, D.C.

MobilityWorks has been helping people connect with who and what matters since 1997.This Veterans’ program is designed to meet the individual needs of Veterans and to work with the local VISNs and Veterans’ service organizations to make the process of securing accessible vehicles, lifts, and driving equipment for Veterans as easy as possible.

The two organizations, BraunAbility of Winamac, Indiana, and MobilityWorks, worked in conjunction with NAAV as a momentous opportunity to present the Johnsons with a much-needed mobility assisted minivan. The MobilityWorks Foundation was the major sponsor of this donation.
