Wheelchair Accessible? Ask Google Maps...
REMINDER: In 2020, as part of Global Accessibility Awareness Day, Google shared some updates to their platform:

"...imagine...being able to “know before you go” whether a destination is wheelchair accessible, just as effortlessly as looking up the address. People can now turn on an “Accessible Places” feature to have wheelchair accessibility information more prominently displayed in Google Maps. When Accessible Places is switched on, a wheelchair icon will indicate an accessible entrance and you’ll be able to see if a place has accessible seating, restrooms or parking. If it’s confirmed that a place does not have an accessible entrance, we’ll show that information on Maps as well".

You have to love technology! And the innovators who make these great things happen. Thank you, Google, for this great tool.
Special Chairs for our Pediatric Clients

Since the beginning of 2021, NAF has received requests for six P-Pod Chairs for paralyzed children referred by children's hospitals. The P-Pod chair is an alternative seating device for the home that provides all the clinical benefits for a child, while allowing them to actively participate with their family. It offers outstanding positional support for children with scoliosis and spina bifida.

These are the children that have already received P-Pod Chairs or are in the process of receiving them.

Cameron - age 2
Maya - age 3
Chuy - age 5
Colby - age 9
Joshua - age 11
Savannah - age 11

In addition to requests for P-Pod Chairs, NAF also provides Tomato Seats and Rifton Activity Seats.

These children have received one of those items:

Dane - age 2
Shire - age 9

These specialized seating and positioning chairs can cost from $1,300-$2,000 but the benefit to the child and their family is priceless. If you would like to donate towards one of these positioning chairs, please send an email to

Meet Christian...
Christian, age 23, sustained a spinal cord injury to his T8 vertebrae from a gunshot wound. He was insured but his insurance policy doesn't pay for any durable medical equipment. His case manager reached out to NAF to request assistance with his mobility equipment when he went home from the hospital. NAF was happy to purchase his manual wheelchair, transfer bench and drop-arm commode so that Christian would be able to be independent in his home. 
Meet NAF's Board President...

Vicki Niedermayer

Vicki Niedermayer has over 40 years of experience working in the nonprofit sector, and has been the CEO of the largest nonprofit organization providing in home support for people with long term disabilities throughout the state of Texas for the last 20 years, Helping Restore Ability (HRA). Vicki has over 40 years of experience working in the nonprofit sector, and at the time that she joined HRA, their annual budget was just over $1 million. Today, HRA’s annual budget exceeds $32 million, and Vicki brings this expertise to NAF in growing a grass roots nonprofit in terms of scope and scale to an organization providing an expanded array of services throughout the entire state. She has a strong working knowledge of local, state and national philanthropic foundations that support NAF’s mission, as well as expertise in finance, nonprofit rules and regulations, HR experience, mentoring and building a strong workforce as the organization grows. She is a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst, serving on local and statewide task forces.

A graduate of Texas A&M University and UT Arlington, Vicki also participated in Leadership Arlington, and in 2018 was awarded the Legacy Woman of the Year award. The Arlington Chamber of Commerce Center for Business and Community Development named Helping Restore Ability the Nonprofit of the Year, and HRA also received a 2011 Aggie 100 award recognizing the top 100 most successful Aggie-owned or managed businesses worldwide. Vicki is the proud mother of Dr. Kristen Taylor, D.O. and Russel Niedermayer, and most recently she became a Lolli (and her husband is known as Pop) to their 8 month old new granddaughter, Madison. She also is a former foster care parent for animal shelters, and therefore now has 5 fur children (4 dogs, one cat), so her husband no longer allows her to bring homeless animals to their home. Her husband Eric Niedermayer, who is also the CEO of a local nonprofit organization, Recovery Resource Council. Her passions are travel (she is an avid scuba diver), stand up comedy (she once put on an improv show at Four Day Weekend in Ft.

She loves swimming with sharks, yoga, and dating her husband.
THANK YOU To Our Sponsors! 
We Need Your Help
Donate ~ Sponsor ~ Volunteer
Your $25 donation will help provide clean catheters to a paralyzed child for one month when their insurance won't cover the expense.

Your $100 donation will help build a wheelchair ramp so we can get our clients out of rehab and through their front door at home.

Your $200 donation will help widen the doorways in their homes so their wheelchair can fit through the bathroom door. Insurance doesn't covers home modifications.

Your $500 donation will help provide life-changing medical equipment: wheelchairs and specialized shower chairs, etc. Most insurance only covers a small part of wheelchairs, if any, and no "bathing aids" are covered.
