WellBuilt Bikes has opened its doors to those less fortunate, allowing them to spend a few days repairing and restoring bicycles and learning some repair skills along the way. And at the end of their time in the shop, they get to take a bicycle with them.
Those who choose to visit the shop and participate in the program help the full-service shop offer low-cost repairs to the general public. And when they ride away on their new bike, they enjoy a greater sense of freedom because the bike gets them to medical appointments, classes and job interviews.
But more than anything, it gives them a sense of hope to know that there are people out there who care and that they have access to everything they need to improve their lives.
