Grant’s Gift Foundation Grants

Grant's Gift Foundation was formed by a group of friends who decided that they could make a difference in the lives of children with special needs in South Louisiana.

Michael and Angie de la Houssaye are the proud parents of the one-and-only, Grant, a child with special needs, and they realized that in order for Grant to enjoy a simple bike ride with his parents and two siblings, they needed to purchase him a custom bike. These adaptive bicycles that allow children with special needs to be more independent and in control are very expensive. Michael and Angie started the Foundation in an effort to help others in similar situations as they are and have granted out special bikes, adaptive iPads, Service animals and more. Read more about their success stories HERE.
