John Benson has been working with the disabled community in Berkeley and the East Bay Area for the past 30 years. Originally from Ohio, John started as a student at UC Berkeley in 1988, and quickly fell in love with a group of very active people fighting for various rights for the disabled, specifically the right to live independent of the medical model...
The rainy season can be difficult to navigate for someone who relies on an electric mobility device to get around, but it doesn't have to be impossible.
"John Benson is an invaluable asset to any community. I am so glad to be part of his. For over 30 years John's provided professional, knowledgeable and caring service. He listens to disabled people and shares their valuable knowledge. Not only does he know how to fix anything, he also knows how to do it in the least intrusive way for the client. If there was only one wheelchair technician in the world, I want it to
be John Benson." - Corbett, Richmond
"The first time that I met John Benson was close to 15 years ago. The back wheel of my power chair had split entirely in half, leaving me stranded on the streets of Berkeley. John miraculously showed up on the side of the road, patched my wheel back together, got me moving again and safely home.
Since then..." - Loren, Berkeley
