Rachel is a paraplegic who lives in Idaho Falls, Idaho and has been paralyzed almost 25 years. Though life has not been easy, she loves to help others and is a Special Ed teacher at an elementary school. Rachel’s old broken-down vehicle she has used for years quit working regularly and kept her from making it to work every day. With the help of Chair The Hope and Rachel’s drive for independence, we were able to raise the money to purchase a new truck with accessible equipment and she is back serving those in her community again. Rachel is one of our first Hope Dealers.
