Raising Funds For Handicap Accessible Bus!

Since 2007, Compassionate Heart Ministries has served more than 500 teens and young adults with special needs and disabilities in the West Michigan area.  To help us include and accommodate all of our participants, we desperately need to purchase a handicap accessible bus.  We have raised just over half of the $70,000.  We want everyone to get to the fun daily events we offer!
