The Richmond Hill Mobility Accessibility Foundation is a registered not-for-profit organization, dedicated to making the City of Richmond Hill a more accessible, barrier free community for persons with disabilities.
To provide the Richmond Hill community with resources and leadership that would facilitate accessibility to all its citizens with disabilities. Richmond Hill Mobility’s ultimate goal is to ensure that through its efforts, the City of Richmond Hill strives to be a barrier-free community.
The Richmond Hill Mobility Accessibility Foundation (RH Mobility) was formed in 1999, when a group of volunteers decided that Richmond Hill needed an accessible taxi van to help individuals with mobility impairments living within the City of Richmond Hill. Through different fundraising adventures, RH Mobility started to raise much-needed funds, and in doing so was able to assist with the purchase of two accessible vans. Although RH Mobility no longer provides a van service, the foundation decided to broaden the scope of their mandate to move beyond just transit services, and to achieve their goal of making Richmond Hill a barrier-free community.
The Richmond Hill Mobility Accessibility Foundation supports various programs and initiatives within our community to help people with disabilities achieve greater mobility through a barrier-free environment. Learn more about our programs here.
Richmond Hill Mobility Accessibility Foundation (RH Mobility) has two main reliable sources of funding:

Through our funding we have started to break down accessibility barriers in and around our community in many ways to improve mobility for persons with disabilities.
