Vehicles for Change received a very rare donation of a wheelchair-accessible van and gifted it to the Olawuyi family, who is staying at our House!

In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Governor Hogan teamed up with the Orioles to raise $50,000 for our House and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
