Freewheels Houston is able to provide bikes and safety equipment to refugee and immigrant youth, adult refugees and veterans emerging from homeless through the generous support oof bike donors, individuals, churches and other organizations that support our mission of freedom through transportation.
We are grateful to sponsors that have increased our capacity to provide safety equipment.
