About Us

Interested in joining a grassroots civic chapter called AMBUCS? Our local
chapter here in TYLER is known as the TYLER AREA AMBUCS and it's making a
major impact in the lives of children and their families within our

AMBUCS is dedicated to helping people and their families as they face the daily obstacles that come with physical disabilities. We do that in several ways:
1) AMTRYKES - Modified tricycles which create mobility for those who cannot ride a conventional bike. Not only do these bikes allow for the joy of riding a bike, they also aid with physical therapy for their riders. Our chapter provides Trykes to children in need in the East Texas area.

2) Wheel Chair Ramps - Our chapter members build twelve ramps per year throughout the community. We not only provide the labor, but we can also assist with purchasing the materials.

3) Scholarship Programs – Our chapter is looking to partner with Tyler Junior College and the upcoming Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant and Physical Therapy Assistant programs to grant annual scholarships to local students that are entering therapy fields.

4) Community Service – Our chapter volunteers several hours of community service each year. Through our efforts, we are able to raise funds and awareness to support our mission. Examples are serving with the East Texas Food Bank, serving the homeless at Church Under a Bridge, and more!

Our membership covers a wide range of professions throughout the community, including: Bankers, Therapists, Professors, Financial Advisors, and Business Owners. The AMBUCS motto of “Shoulders Together” is truly evident when watching our diverse membership come together to help those in need.

AMBUCS is the Fun Way to Serve! We have social events to allow our members to mingle and enjoy the latest chapter accomplishments. Members serve on committees and have an impact on how the chapter operates.

The TYLER AREA AMBUCS meet the FIRST and THIRD Tuesday of each month at noon with meetings usually lasting up to one hour. We enjoy a great meal and have a speaker once a month that informs the group about their local business, organization, or hobby.

A full membership in the chapter is $30 per month, which can be paid monthly or quarterly, and includes your meal each meeting. Our chapter provides its membership with the opportunity to help those in need, network with other members, and Have Fun!

I can assure you that joining AMBUCS is a decision you will not regret. Please feel free to attend a meeting, as our guest, to gain a better understanding of our chapter and our benefit on the community. There is no cost to visit and you would be more than welcomed at a meeting.

Thanks for your consideration!
