November 10, 2017 - Savannah resident Kevin Sheehan has been elected to serve as the national president of AMBUCS. 

“AMBUCS is such a wonderful organization, making a real difference in the lives of individuals in so many ways, and I am honored to serve on the national level,” said Sheehan.

The National AMBUCS organization was founded as American Business Clubs, a membership organization dedicated to helping people with different abilities. In 1961, the organization shortened it to AMBUCS. AMBUCS now has more than 5,000 members in 159 chapters in 35 states. The non-profit’s mission is to create mobility and independence for people with disabilities.

Since 1955, National AMBUCS has donated $8.8 million in scholarships to students pursuing physical, occupational and speech therapy degrees; donated almost 30,000 three-wheel bicycles, known as amtrykes, for children and adults who cannot ride regular bicycles; and coordinated a variety of community service projects to raise funds and awareness for the organization.
