We at the Better U strive to identify outstanding grant making opportunities which enable socially profitable ideas to improve local communities and the world at large. Each of our partners contributes in a different way.
The need for wheelchairs is staggering. In developing nations it is estimated that 100 million people are in dire need of a wheelchair, yet lack the resources to obtain one. Already suffering from the pain of isolation and the indignity of a physical disability, many are forced to live on the ground or wait to be carried to meet their most basic of needs.
Better U knows there is a better way. Free Wheelchair Mission is a humanitarian, faith-based, non-profit organization providing wheelchairs and hope through the gift of mobility at no cost to people living with disabilities in developing nations.

Homeboy Industries provides hope, training, and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community. Each year over 10,000 former gang members from across Los Angeles come through Homeboy Industries’ doors in an effort to make a positive change.
Better U believes Homeboy Industries provides more than the philosophical second chance to the men and women it serves. Homeboy Industries has the resources and experience to actually heal and thus transform this population pain, not merely transmit it.
