Volunteers repair bikes, give freedom to refugees, veterans and youth

Freewheels Houston bicycles, repaired by volunteers, are safe, reliable, low-cost transportation that enables self-sufficiency for refugees, veterans emerging from homelessness and young people from low-income families. A bike means freedom–a way to get to work and school and take advantage of all the opportunities available in Houston.

Currently, most of the bikes we repair are given to refugees who fled the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan and veterans and others emerging from homelessness. We also work with schools including Klentzman Intermediate School in Alief ISD.
